Founded in 1980 as The Hospice of Sarasota County, Tidewell Hospice is a mission-driven, not-for-profit organization providing a comprehensive continuum of care for patients with advanced illness. As a result of the organization’s conscientious stewardship, compassionate care and outstanding reputation in the community, Tidewell’s service area has grown over the years to include the residents of Charlotte, DeSoto, Manatee and Sarasota counties.

The Southwest Florida lifestyle — with its beautiful beaches, business and recreational opportunities, diverse cultural influences and artistic flair — is touted by residents as living in paradise. CNN/Money Magazine selected Sarasota as “America’s Best Small City” and Employment Review named it “A Top 20 Best Place to Live and Work.” Each community served by Tidewell offers its unique charm, contributing to the appeal of the entire area — a picturesque region of Southwest Florida.
