Our name says it all! We’re dedicated to going above and beyond in every interaction we have with our patients and their loved ones. It’s just one way we ensure the superior level of care and attention you need and deserve.

Families like yours have been trusting Superior Home Health and Hospice for home care in Santa Maria and throughout Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties since 2007. In fact, we have been recognized by the United States Senate and Congress for receiving a Lompoc Valley Chamber of Commerce small business excellence award for outstanding service to our community.

After having negative experiences with in-home care services for our own loved ones, we were motivated to create a better alternative for area families. We believe that every person should have access to highly skilled, dedicated, and compassionate care. That is exactly what we promise and consistently deliver.

At Superior Home Health and Hospice, our track record of in-home healthcare excellence provides families with the peace of mind they need.

Our Leadership Team

Pablo Martinez

Pablo Martinez


Pablo has been in the home care industry since 2007 and has a heart to serve Central Coast residents by providing expert in-home care services. Pablo is the first to say he could not provide exceptional home health and hospice care without the superior knowledge and integrity of his staff. He is proud to employ some of the best clinicians on the Central Coast, which is why Superior Home Health and Hospice consistently has the highest Medicare rating around. Pablo is not only the owner, but an integral part of the Superior team, never hesitating to lend a helping hand to clients and staff alike.

After starting sister company Superior Senior Home Care in 2007, Pablo saw a need for more specialized care in the home, and Superior Home Health and Hospice was born. Together, the two companies meet a wide variety of care needs for Central Coast families.

Pablo has a passion for supporting the community, whether it is coaching and sponsoring youth sports, participating in the Lompoc Rotary and Elks clubs, rescuing animals, or showing support for local law enforcement and the Space Force Base.
