About Suncoast HospiceMissionandValues.png

Founded in 1977 by volunteers, Suncoast Hospice was born out of the vision of an exceptional group of people who realized the value of hospice care and wanted it for their families and neighbors. Today, their vision and mission remain the cornerstones of our work and organizational soul.
Our contiuum of care is available for people of all ages dealing with a variety of end-of-life issues and in the management of disease. From helping seniors remain independent through our Program of All-inclusive Care for the Elderly, advance directives and decision support, caregiver support, help for those effected and affected by AIDS, hospice and palliative care to services for those dealing with grief or traumatic death. 

As a not-for-profit, Suncoast Hospice depends on the support from our community. In 2012 more than $10.64 million was donated from our community in support of continuing quality end-of-life care.
