Tidewell Hospice... it's more than you think.
For 35 years, Tidewell has provided the highest quality care to patients and families living with advanced illness, while honoring human dignity and personal choice. Tidewell strives to treat the whole person — fulfilling physical, psychosocial and spiritual needs — and views the patient and his/her family as a unit. That’s what makes Tidewell so unique in today’s health care picture. You are invited to explore all the programs and services Tidewell has to offer. In doing so, you’ll discover that Tidewell is really about building relationships — providing the comfort and support to deal with complex and difficult issues and, along the way, finding joy in each day. Tidewell doesn’t give you the power to shorten or prolong life, just the power to live it as you choose.

Let your appetite do the giving while you support Tidewell Hospice. During September, the 18th Annual Columbia Restaurant Community Harvest program will be celebrated at all Columbia locations.
Through this program, Columbia donates 5 percent of all guests’ lunch and dinner checks to the charitable organizations chosen by the customers. Diners can participate at the Columbia Restaurant in St. Armands Circle, Sarasota, as well as Ybor City , St. Augustine, Sand Key on Clearwater Beach, Central Florida’s Town of Celebration, the Columbia Cafe on the Riverwalk in downtown Tampa at the Tampa Bay History Center and the Columbia Restaurant Cafe at Tampa International Airport. All Columbia locations are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.
During the past 17 years, the Columbia Restaurant Community Harvest has donated more than $1.6 million to non-profit organizations throughout Florida.
Consider the Conversation is a remarkable, thought-provoking film that looks at many of the issues that we will all face at the end-of-life. It opens the floodgates of thought and conversation on this most difficult and often taboo subject. It helps to illustrate many areas of improvement in our health care system. I would encourage everyone to watch this important film including physicians, healthcare workers, patients and families. This film will help us to be better physicians, better nurses, better patients and better people.
