40 Years of Hospice Care and More

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. We also provide advance directives assistance, HIV/AIDS prevention and education, as well as grief and crisis counseling.

Mission Statement

Unified in empathy, we serve our communities through extraordinary Full Life Care for all.

Description

Our Legacy

Founded as Suncoast (1977) and Tidewell (1980) as true pioneers in hospice care, each of our organizations adapted to change and grew to meet the needs of the community, ultimately evolving to become Empath Health and Stratum Health System, respectively.

We came together as Empath Health in March 2021, creating the country’s largest non-profit hospice and home care-based health care organization. Rooted in the remarkable people that give so much of themselves, we look to further our unwavering commitment to uniquely high standards by now growing together.

Our vision, shaped by inspiration and nurtured by imagination, is now made possible by our collaboration. Together, we will grow to better support the communities we love and are so privileged to serve. Together we can protect our legacy of exceptional care, better strengthen our ability to provide and best solidify our devotion to bringing together the healthcare expertise necessary with the emotional and spiritual support so essential to our shared mission.
