Stepping forward to enhance end-of-life care
Gulfside Hospice, a leading provider of compassionate health care services, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony for its newest venture — a state-of-the-art Gulfside Hospice Care Center — on Dec. 8, on the future grounds of the center.
The event featured speeches from key figures involved in the project, a ceremonial groundbreaking, and an opportunity for those attending to learn more about the innovative features of hospice care.
The new center was designed to provide unparalleled comfort, support and dignity to individuals facing life-limiting illnesses. Equipped with cutting-edge facilities and a team of compassionate health care professionals, the facility aims to redefine the standards of hospice care in New Port Richey and beyond in Pasco County.
The groundbreaking ceremony marked the beginning of construction and the hospice care center is expected to open its doors to patients in January 2025.
Gulfside Healthcare Services is a nonprofit organization that includes three lines of businesses: Gulfside Hospice, offering care for patients at end of life; Gulfside Palliative Care, providing treatment options for those with chronic illness; and Gulfside Home Health, helping patients stay independent through skilled nursing and rehab at home.
