    Info Request

    Good Shepherd Hospice has been here for you since 1979 offering quality, compassionate hospice care to everyone in Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties.

    Good Shepherd Hospice Mission Statement - The mission of Good Shepherd Hospice is to provide quality palliative care and relieve the suffering of those in our communities affected by life-limiting illnesses and end-of-life issues, maintaining the highest ethical standards, so all may live as fully and comfortably as possible.

    Good Shepherd Hospice Goes Above and Beyond - Medicare sets certain basic minimums that every hospice provider must meet. And we all do. The real question is what each hospice does to go above and beyond the minimum care requirements set by Medicare.

    At Good Shepherd Hospice, we go way beyond those basic hospice requirements to identify and meet the specific needs of each patient and family—from extra homelike touches in our three hospice houses to the comprehensive bereavement care we offer to families long after their loved one has died.

    When you ask for us by name, ask about our quality, compassionate care that goes far above and beyond the basic hospice requirements.

    As a Not-for-Profit Provider, Good Shepherd Hospice will never deny services to anyone due to financial hardship. Patients receive services wherever they call home—in a primary residence, assisted living facility, skilled nursing home, hospice house or hospital.

    Good Shepherd Hospice accepts Medicare, Medicaid, Tricare and most private insurances. Under Medicare, Medicaid and Tricare, hospice is an all-inclusive benefit—all services, medications, home medical equipment and medical supplies related to the patient’s illness are covered.
