PASCO COUNTY, Fla. (June 16, 2014) – Join Gulfside Hospice & Pasco Palliative Care as we celebrate the founding of our organization at a special breakfast highlighting the past, present and future operations of the company.
This unique event takes place on July 8 from 8 – 10 a.m. at Seven Springs Golf and Country Club, 3535 Trophy Blvd. in New Port Richey.
Originally founded on July 8, 1988 and then known as Central Gulfside Hospice, Gulfside accepted its first hospice patient on July 5, 1989. Through the years, the company now known as Gulfside Hospice & Pasco Palliative Care has helped countless families facing both chronic and terminal illness, said Gulfside President and CEO Linda Ward.
“This special day gives a chance for the community to put a face on Gulfside’s special care,” said Ward. “During the morning, attendees will hear from one of Gulfside’s founders about the importance of hospice care through the years.”
Originally serving families primarily in west Pasco County, Gulfside Hospice & Pasco Palliative Care now has 14 locations throughout Pasco County to serve Pasco County residents.
“Gulfside Hospice & Pasco Palliative Care is about the people in our community who, when faced with difficult times, can depend on us to provide compassion, service and relief,” said Ward. “Whether it is hospice care in a person’s home, a palliative consult at a hospital, a spouse or child support group, an alternative therapy with music or animals, or a candlelight memorial service, the goal is the same – Comfort, Dignity and Care.”
Space at the breakfast is limited. For more information about the Founder’s Day breakfast or to RSVP for the event, call Gulfside’s community relations department at 800-561-4883 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
