Compassionate care

Sunshine Hospice is dedicated to providing the best possible care for those with life-limiting illnesses and those close to them. With no accredited hospice providing overnight care on the Sunshine Coast, the need for a hospice to provide dignified and humane care at the end of one’s life is paramount.

Sunshine Hospice is committed to building and operating a high-quality, licensed and accredited hospice for the people of the Sunshine Coast.
