For almost 50 years, St. Joseph’s Hospice has been giving new hope and a new life to children and adults with no other options. St. Joseph’s Hospice has provided free quality medical care and medicines, caring and skilled nurses, rehabilitation and physical therapy, and a healthy diet, in a clean, park like setting--to the stroke victim who can’t function, the mother who is paralyzed from an accident or the burned child needing specialized care during reconstructive surgery. Our out-patient clinic serves an average of 100 patients a day at a token fee.
