Why do Hospice patients in Florida and their families benefit from the very best services?
Florida’s Certificate of Need (CON) Program ensures that Floridians have access to hospice services in all 67 counties (including all rural areas). It provides for frequent monitoring of all hospice agencies operating in the state, resulting in high levels of care and satisfaction. And the CON Program promotes community support for community hospices, enabling Floridians to benefit from an array of services, including grief support for adults and children, caregiver support, alternative medicines, special programs for pediatric and veteran patients, and remembrance services around the holidays. It also gives volunteers a great opportunity to participate in and support numerous hospice programs.
