Eureka doctor hopes to expand palliative care program to Crescent City area
Del Norte Triplicate

The founder of a Eureka-based end-of-life care program has reached out to the Del Norte Healthcare District in the hopes of expanding to the Crescent City area.

Dr. Michael Fratkin, president of Resolution Care, says his program has “taken care of quite a lot of folks” in the absence of hospice care in Del Norte County. He says he spoke with Healthcare District Chairman Dr. Greg Duncan about his efforts to build a palliative care program at Sutter Coast Hospital and is hoping to hear back from Healthcare District representatives on “where their thoughts are.”
