Disclaimer for Compare Hospice Providers

The information displayed on the Compare Hospice Provider portion of FloridaHealthFinder.gov is obtained from the Family Evaluation of Hospice Care (FEHC) Survey. This is a survey given to families who participated in hospice care, after their loved one has died. It asks family members about their view on the care provided to the patient, as well as their own hospice experience. The survey looks at quality of care including: patient comfort and emotional support, coordination of care, shared decision making, provision of information, respect for the patient, and provision of emotional support to the family. Most Florida hospices survey families to measure and assess quality. While several tools are used, the tool most commonly used in Florida is the FEHC survey. Hospice providers that have not reported FEHC data may use another valid performance measurement tool, but those results are not provided here. Please contact the hospice directly for information about their particular quality measurement program.

The information on this website is sent quarterly to the Agency for Health Care Information (AHCA) through Florida Hospices and Palliative Care, the Florida hospice trade organization, on a voluntary basis by licensed hospice providers in the state. Users of this information should take into account that not all FEHC measures are reported. Rather the reported measures were selected based on an independent assessment of which five questions on the FEHC survey are the most significant factors influencing overall satisfaction of hospice service. Additional FEHC survey responses might influence overall impressions of a hospice’s performance. Please see the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization for more information.

AHCA makes every effort to post accurate and reliable information on its website, however it does not guarantee or warrant that the information is complete, accurate or up-to-date, or intended to be legal, health, medical or professional advice but merely conveys reported information. AHCA assumes no responsibility for the use or application of any posted material. References from this website to any non-governmental entity, product, service or information do not constitute an endorsement or recommendation by AHCA. This website is not intended to be a sole source of information in making choices about hospice providers or their care. All information is subject to change on a quarterly basis, or without notice.

While hospice providers may play an important role in the care to patients who have a limited life expectancy, the information provided on this website is intended for general information purposes only. The intensity and range of hospice intervention may increase as illness progresses and the complexity of care and needs of the patients and their families increase. Therefore, understanding patient and family perspectives is critical in designing a treatment plan that provides quality life experiences for dying patients. You are further encouraged to discuss the information on this website with your physician or primary provider for medical advice or with your attorney for legal advice.



The survey, "Family Evaluation of Hospice Care," is given to families whose loved one received hospice care. It asks family members about their view on the care provided to the patient, as well as their own hospice experience. This comparison tool, submitted voluntarily by Florida licensed hospice providers, presents the results of that survey and can help you compare hospice providers.

The Agency for Health Care Administration recommends that consumers talk with their doctors about any questions or concerns they have about hospice care.
