Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation

Through the generous support of our community, the Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation raises funds to support the mission of Treasure Health and the people our family of services care for, including Treasure Coast Hospice, our flagship program.

When faced with serious illness, the counseling Treasure Health offers is a great comfort to those who need it. Our donors make it possible to care for our patients with services such as palliative care counseling and individual or group grief support to help families manage these difficult personal issues.

For the youngest members in our care, we come together as a community of loving caregivers to offer children’s programs and experiences to help families build special moments during this difficult time.

These counseling services are not covered by insurance but mean a great deal to those we serve.

Many of our comprehensive care services are paid for through insurance. However, for those without insurance, the gifts of our donors make it possible for everyone to receive care regardless of ability to pay.

Donors to the Foundation make a difference today, and they help to foster and grow the programs and services of tomorrow.

We hope you’ll join us in our efforts to treasure life for every member of our community.

Your gift can come in many forms, such as leaving a legacy gift in your will, making a donation to honor someone you love, sponsoring a special event, supporting our thrift boutiques or contributing a gift outright to make sure that these programs that are essential to quality of life in Martin and St. Lucie counties can continue and grow.

To see how you can make a difference, call us at 772-403-4500 or email the Foundation.

Founding Friends, since 1982

Since 1982, the Founding Friends of Treasure Coast Hospice has been integral to the hospice mission, raising more than $3 million dollars to provide compassionate care to patients in our community.

Events such as a luau, a Mardi Gras celebration, Casino Night, Swing Fore Friends Golf Tournament, and an Afternoon Tea all have attracted financial support – as well as enduring friends – for Treasure Coast Hospice. Today, the 200-plus members of the Founding Friends continue to provide steadfast support and service to the organization.

The Treasure Coast Hospice Foundation honored the Founding Friends at the 2016 Thanks for Giving reception and dinner held at the Santa Lucia River Club in Port St. Lucie. The annual awards presentation recognized the Founding Friends and the extraordinary commitment that this group of volunteers has made to our organization through their financial contributions and by encouraging others to support our mission.

For more information on the Founding Friends or to become a member, please contact Agnes Palmer at apalmer@treasurehealth.org or 772-403-4574.

A Message from Our CEO

Susan de Cuba

President and Chief Executive Officer

Few creatures inspire as much wonder as the hummingbird. Tiny, yet strong enough to migrate 500 miles across the Gulf of Mexico, this brilliant bird is the ultimate symbol of resilience. So it’s only fitting that we have incorporated a hummingbird into our new look and logo to symbolize our organization’s life-affirming mission.

Under the Treasure Coast Hospice name, we have grown our services beyond our cornerstone hospice program to include palliative care, grief support counseling and specialized pediatric care. To better reflect our expanded scope of community services, we have changed the name of our parent organization to Treasure Health, while our flagship hospice program will continue to be called Treasure Coast Hospice.

Hospice will always be the heart of our mission. The same outstanding care the community has known since 1982 will continue. The experience we’ve gained during the past 35 years translates well to other services that improve quality of life. Our full spectrum of support includes Treasure Coast Hospice, Treasure Health Palliative Care, Treasure Health Pediatric Care and Treasure Health Grief Support.

With all of our services, our goal is to empower patients and families with the knowledge and support they need to make every moment count.  Guiding our efforts is a caring community of health professionals, volunteers and donors. Like me, they believe that in all stages of illness, everyone deserves to experience the best possible quality of life.

With our comprehensive, compassionate approach to palliative care, hospice services and grief support, we are building communities that allow people to drive their own destinies for the highest quality of life in every health circumstance.

We are excited to embrace a fresh brand that helps us promote our life-affirming philosophy and look forward to having you join us as a trusted partner in supporting our community’s healthcare journey.
