Hospice Care

Treasure Coast Hospice is here to help . . .


Let us care for your loved one with the highest quality end-of-life care in our community. Patients receive care wherever they call home, including nursing homes or assisted living facilities. If a higher level of care is needed, we offer three Inpatient Units. Patients receiving the special care of hospice often feel better and live longer.

What is Hospice Care?

Everyone deserves quality of life at every age and in every circumstance, including those special last days or months of one’s life. Treasure Coast Hospice brings dignity and calm to patients who want to continue to live their life to the fullest.

Our team of physicians, nurses, aides, counselors, social workers, chaplains and volunteers offers support and care that enable a patient to live as normal a life as possible, pain-free and on their own terms. The care team is more like an extended family than a medical staff. They bring skill and sensitivity in meeting physical, spiritual and emotional needs of patients, and they include the whole family in their compassionate support.

Our patients receive care in their own homes, in hospitals, in nursing homes or assisted living facilities, or in one of our three Inpatient Units.


Treasure Coast Hospice, a Level Three We Honor Veterans Partner with the VA and other veterans organizations, is honored to care for veterans with advanced illness. Read more about our Veterans Program.

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.
