2021 Top Doctors Spotlight: Mount Carmel Hospice and Palliative Doctor Philip Santa-Emma

The Mount Carmel Health System physician is the only hospice and palliative medicine specialist on the list. Both hospice and palliative care work to palliate—or lesson—symptoms, and both offer supportive care and treatment, but they differ in eligibility and focus. Palliative care is a medical subspecialty that focuses on the care and support of patients, along with their families, who have serious medical illnesses. It is unique in medicine in that it is not a specialty focused on a specific body part, but rather on the whole patient who is ill. Hospice care is the management of patients who are in the late phase of incurable diseases. The primary role of hospice is to relieve suffering and improve a patient’s quality of life.

Mr. Rozar married his beloved wife of 55 years, Janice Julia Carter Rozar, from Surrency on August 25, 1961. Having learned the trade of a mechanic as a young boy from his father, he left the Coast Guard and joined the US Navy as a Seabee and a Heavy Equipment Mechanic. His combined 30 years of Military Service, Combat Medal Ribbon and three tours in Vietnam, makes him this family’s American Hero. He also had an enduring family history and gratitude & praise for Hopewell United Methodist Church that has help sustained his faith in God. Another accomplishment in his life was having 50 years of sobriety with AA, working as a rehabilitation counselor in Oxnard, CA. He felt strongly about sharing his story to help others. Mr. Rozar was also a member of the Masonic Hall Fraternal organization in Long Beach, MS. His family & friends are his greatest legacy. With his sweet smile, a little chuckle and probably a cup of coffee in his hand, we have a lifetime of stories and memories we can share.
