Hope is implementing safeguards recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and the Florida Department of Health to reduce the potential for the COVID-19 virus to impact our community.

Admissions and Home Care
Admissions to Hope Hospice, Hope Palliative Care, Hope PACE, and Hope Kids Care are currently active.

These guidelines apply to all guests and visitors. Your patience and support are greatly appreciated. Thank you for helping keep our community safe!

  • For everyone’s safety, each patient may have 2 visitors in the Care Center at a time.
  • If you have traveled internationally, please inform us so we may review safe distancing protocols with you.
