Lourdes has a strong regional network of caregivers and a rich heritage of faith-based service. Lourdes Foundation helps people access care by supporting innovative programs that ensure everyone receives the quality compassionate healthcare they need - when they need it.
This program is at the very heart and soul of our mission. Caring for others is both a great responsibility and an enormous privilege. A gift to the Patient Mission Fund allows Lourdes Foundation to help those with the greatest need for items such as medications, food, clothing, or even a ride home. With the support of our generous donors, our compassion guides and strengthens us so we can continue in our call to extend the healing ministry of Jesus.
Lourdes Hospice and Palliative Care is dedicated to supporting patients and their families through challenging times of transition, illness, death and grief. Considered to be the model for quality and compassionate care for those facing life threatening illness or injury, hospice and palliative care staff take a team-oriented approach to medical care, pain and symptom management and offer emotional and spiritual support that is tailored to the patient's needs and wishes. We believe every human being has the right to a quality life and a natural, pain-free death that honors their choices, dignity, and those of their loved ones. A gift made to the Hospice Fund helps provide critical and free access to this special need.
Gifts to this Endowment Fund are invested and the interest income is used to address the current needs of patients in the Ray and Kay Eckstein Hospice Care Center and needs which will arise in the future. Families have many pressing matters to consider without the burden of how to pay for end-of-life hospice care. This Endowment Fund ensures all patients who need inpatient hospice care, respite care or who don’t want to die at home have a comfortable home-like place to receive hospice services. Please help us grow this important endowment.
