A spiritual place of peace and compassion.
You have a choice in hospice care providers. Our Medicare-Certified Hospice Residence provides free, comprehensive hospice care at our location in Saint Paul.
Comprehensive Care for All
Our dedicated care teams work closely with patients and their families to develop an individualized care plan that suits their needs. Because coordination of services is so important, each care team consists of a physician, nurse, social worker, pastoral care director, bereavement services, and pharmacist. Bringing these resources together under one roof increases communication, reduces response time, and keeps patients and families involved in care decisions.
