Full Life Care
Empath Health is uniquely devoted to pioneering all-embracing care that provides for the full life. We’re here for all stages of care, for all dimensions of well-being and for all aspects dear to one’s life. We consider it a privilege and a calling to give more of ourselves in order to offer a truly exceptional experience, unlike any other.
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.
Unified in empathy, we serve our communities through extraordinary Full Life Care for all.
Redefine healthcare as Full Life Care.
