We’re excited to announce that Halcyon at Colorado VNA Medical Director Luis Felipe (Phil) Ramos, MD, is officially board-certified in hospice and palliative medicine. Being board-certified signifies that Dr. Ramos has undertaken extra education to attain a high level of expertise in hospice and palliative care.
Dr. Ramos received his certification from the American Board of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, following his completion of the Interprofessional Palliative Care Fellowship at Harvard University.
