A message from our President and CEO
Welcome to Gulfside Regional Hospice. Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the wonderful services that Gulfside Regional
Hospice provides to our community.
Our goal at Gulfside Regional Hospice is to make every day count for people facing end-of-life illness and their families. We do this
through a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support that is tailored to the
patientís needs and wishes. Support is provided to the patientís loved ones as well.
Hospice care focuses on caring, not curing. At Gulfside, our care is provided wherever the patient calls home. Traditionally, we visit
patients in their homes, but we also visit individuals in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, retirement homes or in our own hospice
houses and Center for Hospice Care.
The major responsibilities of the Gulfside team include managing the patientís pain and symptoms, assisting the patient with the emotional
and spiritual aspects of end-of-life issues, providing necessary medications, medical equipment and supplies, and coaching the family on how
to care for the patient - all at no out-of-pocket expense to the family.
Gulfside Regional Hospice strives to be Pasco Countyís hospice provider of choice. I am humbled to lead this amazing organization. Gulfside
Regional Hospice has come full circle from its early beginnings as a small community hospice, to a large county-wide hospice and palliative
care organization, serving more than 400 patients daily.

Hospice, please call any time 1-800-561-4883 or visit the Contact
