Our mission is to provide exceptional care and set a standard in hospice by empowering our team to act with unmatched compassion and support to our patients and their loved ones.
We believe that exceptional care is founded on a drive to exceed customer expectations, a desire to
provide care with empathy and a dedication to communicate clearly.
We know that exceptional care requires exceptional people, and as such our team will be built and
maintained from individuals dedicated to their craft, committed to caring and driven to improve their
abilities and character.
We will succeed by humbly serving one another, providing unwavering support and together committing our full effort and devotion to being exceptional.
Dr. Amanda Caparso D.O. graduated from Youngstown State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree and received her D.O. from Touro University College in Henderson, NV. Dr. Caparso is currently the Chair Elect of the Internal Medicine Department for Palomar Health as well as the Medical Director of the Palliative – Oncology and Med Surgery floors. She is also the Medical Director of Shores Hospice. She has been awarded the Physician of the Year for Palomar Health as well as Physician of the Year for several floors during her tenure.
She has lived in San Diego for seven years with her Husband, a surgeon at Sharp, and their two boys. She has always found the most challenging and rewarding thing in medicine is being honest and truthful with patients about the course of their illness.
She has always been driven by the belief that patients long for a physician who speaks their language, who is down to earth, and who can be honest about what the road looks like ahead.
“I have always found caring for patients at the end of their life to be the most rewarding and meaningful moments, It’s about choosing life, choosing not to suffer, and choosing to enjoy the moments you have left.” That is what I hope to bring to my patients and families along with the Shores team.
Shores Hospice came about in an unexpected way. The three managing partners come from very different backgrounds but were brought together by a desire to raise the bar in the industry. As their loved ones get older and exposed to new challenges, together they decided there could be something better in hospice care: Shores Hospice – our mission is to provide exceptional care and set a standard in hospice by empowering our team to act with unmatched compassion and support to our patients and their loved ones.
