Village On The Isle, a faith-based, not-for-profit continuing care retirement community located on the island of Venice, and Tidewell Hospice have announced an enhanced working relationship to offer dedicated inpatient hospice care at Village On The Isle’s campus.
Village On The Isle owns and operates a full continuum of independent living, assisted living, memory care support, and skilled nursing care on its 16.5-acre campus. For the past few years, Village On The Isle has undergone a major expansion and renovation that includes the addition of a new 66,000 square foot Health Center featuring all private rooms and amenities for residents who need around-the-clock nursing care and short-term rehabilitative support. The Tidewell Care Center at Village On The Isle will occupy eight of the 64 private suites to provide dedicated inpatient hospice services.
Criteria for admission will be the same as it is for Tidewell’s hospice houses. Patients in need of continuous symptom control can be admitted to the Care Center for around-the-clock care while their condition is stabilized. When those symptoms are brought under control and patients, and their family members feel comfortable making the transition, they can return to their residence.
“Tidewell Hospice is honored to partner with Village On The Isle to offer world-class hospice care in the Health Center,” Tidewell Chief Nursing Officer Pauline Mailey said. “This inpatient unit demonstrates Tidewell’s commitment to providing health care services to the Venice community.”
“When Tidewell approached us about this arrangement, we were delighted,” says Joel Anderson, CEO of Village On The Isle, “In addition to serving patients and families of the local community, Tidewell will also be conveniently available to support Village On The Isle’s current and future residents, which is a win-win for both our organizations.”
Village On The Isle, situated on a beautiful 16.5-acre campus on the island of Venice, is one of the first continuing care retirement communities on the Gulf Coast of Florida. A vibrant and visionary community offering the full continuum of care, Village On The Isle is guided in its philosophy and practices by its mission to ‘share God’s love by promoting individual growth and dignity, enhancing the quality of life and meeting the human and spiritual needs of our residents, staff, and community.’
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, Tidewell Hospice is an independent, not-for-profit health provider offering a home-centered, comprehensive system of end of life and palliative care for people living with advanced illness and their families. Annually, Tidewell provides care for nearly 10,000 patients throughout Sarasota, Manatee, Charlotte, and DeSoto counties. As the region’s only not-for-profit hospice, Tidewell relies on donor contributions to provide a number of its acclaimed patient and community services. Tidewell is accredited by the Community Health Accreditation Partner (CHAP) with deemed status, signifying excellent care, and meeting Medicare’s conditions of participation.
