Empath Health is a leading Tampa Bay, Florida nonprofit, integrated network of care that provides expert medical, counseling and support services for anyone facing a chronic or advanced illness. We began as compassionate community volunteers who came together to care for our Suncoast Hospice patients and families in Pinellas County in 1977.
Today our dedicated volunteers and staff serve even more people in our Pinellas and Tampa communities. We support hospice, home health, palliative care, veterans, pediatric patients, aging seniors, HIV/AIDS clients, families and caregivers.
