Foundation for Hospices in Sub-Saharan Africa (FHSSA)

Odyssey HealthCare, Inc. is proud to partner with several hospitals in Africa through the Foundation for Hospices in Sub-Saharan Africa (FHSSA). As a leader in end-of-life care in the United States, Odyssey is excited to join with FHSSA in our shared vision of raising the level of hospice and palliative care services in Africa. Our common goal is to have every person in need, particularly in the context of the HIV/AIDS pandemic, receive affordable, high quality and culturally sensitive palliative care.

Four Odyssey HealthCare local offices are partnering with FHSSA to raise funds for a designated hospital in Africa.
