The role of a Hospice Medical Director in patient care
Cory Hall, MD, Odyssey Medical Director
Odyssey HealthCare Medical Director and Associate Medical Directors lead the hospice interdisciplinary team by ensuring distressing pain and symptoms are managed. They assist the team in problem-solving issues of concern to the patient and caregivers.
The Odyssey Medical Directors complement the attending physician's care and act as a medical resource for other team members. If the patient/family desires or physician requests, the Odyssey Medical Director may serve as the patient's attending physician.
