Putting Patients First Since 1988

For over 30 years, Catholic Hospice has served as a source of comfort and care for the South Florida community.

Serving all faiths, we are a not-for-profit hospice provider dedicated to giving those with a life-limiting prognosis the supportive, quality care they deserve. Our highly trained staff members spend more hours a day with patients and their loved ones than any other hospice provider in Miami-Dade and Broward counties.

Your decisions. Your care.

Catholic Hospice puts you in control of your quality of life. In an atmosphere of compassion, human dignity and respect, we provide comprehensive services and supplemental programs — on your terms. Through individualized care plan coordination, medical supervision, pain management, emotional support and spiritual guidance, your comfort is our priority.

Catholic Hospice.  Providing Comfort. Preserving Dignity.
