The Legacy of Our Lady of Peace
Medicare-Certified Hospice Residence, Community Hospice, and Home Health
Our Lady of Peace Hospice Residence
The Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne opened a humble care center in St. Paul to provide free care for terminal cancer patients who were without means. Our Lady of Peace Hospice Residence has since expanded its mission to include both children and non-cancer patients regardless of their social, religious, or economic status.
Our Lady of Peace Community Hospice
Our Community Hospice program was formerly known as St. Mary's Hospice, located in Highland Park and run by Franciscan Health Community. It is a community-based hospice located on the Our Lady of Peace Residential Hospice campus, serving the 7-county metro area. The staff provides care to patients wherever they call home—a private home, nursing home, group home, etc.
Our Lady of Peace Home Care
This program, formerly Franciscan Home Health Care, serves the 7-county metro area and helps those in need with in-home therapies and by assisting with activities of daily living and in order to continue living life from the comfort of home. It is short-term care which may be used, for example, to support someone in their home as they recover after surgery or to simply maintain their current living situation.
Highland Block Nurse Program
The goal of the state-funded Highland Block Nurse Program, housed at the Residential Hospice campus, is to help older residents stay healthy and live safely in their homes in the Highland Park neighborhood of St. Paul.
