Your Experts in Hospice and Palliative Care
Suncoast Hospice is a member of Empath Health, the country’s largest not-for-profit health system delivering non-acute care and services through its skilled, medical and holistic programs to individuals with chronic, advanced and terminal illnesses or experiencing grief throughout North Central, West Central and Southwest Florida. Since 1977, we have been honored to be Pinellas County’s only community hospice for expert end-of-life care. As one of the first nonprofit hospices in the country, our pioneering volunteer founders supported the dying and their families with care, compassion, dignity and comfort, so that no one would die alone or in pain.
Today, we lead forward with our mission through an even larger scope of services and partnerships. We aim to uplift the whole well-being of patients and families with the highest level of care and support. We provide medical treatment, integrative medicine, volunteer support, counseling, caregiver education and more. Additionally, we help bring comfort and peace to lives that come to a close along with hope and healing to loved ones after a loss.
