Care Center

EDWARD M. POE HOSPICE CARE CENTER
Another Avenue for Uplifting the Lives of Our Patients and Their Families

poeHospice of St. Francis’ Edward M. Poe Hospice Care Center accepted the first patient in March 2014. The Care Center is located at 1240 Grissom Parkway, Titusville, FL 32780. The Care Center is a 12-suite full service hospice care facility, with the following features:

  • A 15, 000 square foot facility that provides short-term acute symptom management for hospice patients – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
  • Each of the 12 suites provides adequate space for family members to visit and be complete with a private 10 x 10 porch.
  • Two of the suites are for isolation, and one is equipped for bariatric care.
  • The grounds have a landscaped path.
  • The care center building includes a chapel, a playroom for children and a kitchenette for the families.
  • Hospice of St. Francis sought a Certificate of Need from the State of Florida in late 2011 and received notice of approval in February 2012. The Hospice Care Center is the only facility of its type in North Brevard.

    Emilie Sasko, RN, the founder of Hospice of St. Francis, was in attendance at the Ground Breaking Ceremony in November 2013. She passed away in our care in early 2014, but she had the opportunity to see her dream for our organization come to fruition.
