An Update From Us On COVID-19
Friends of Hospice of Southern Illinois,

While we want to practice social distancing, we don’t want to become disconnected. We are all experiencing vast changes and uncharted territory; remember, we are in this together! One thing remains constant: Hospice of Southern Illinois will remain open to provide end-of-life care, support, and guidance throughout this pandemic. As fundraisers, social events, and gatherings move off of our calendars, Hospice of Southern Illinois’ number one priority will not waiver, which is the care of our patients and the support to caregivers.

Thank You Community Partners
All fundraisers, educational programs, and mission-related events have been postponed at this time. We are hopeful that we can reschedule these functions and gatherings later this year when it is safe to do so. As an organization dedicated to providing exceptional care to the communities we serve, our uncompromising priority right now at Hospice of Southern Illinois is protecting those in our care, our team members, patients and families, and our community partners from exposure to coronavirus (COVID-19). Thank you for being part of our community and staying connected to our mission. We appreciate those who stand by us, supporting and advocating for patients and families facing a life-limiting illness. While our schedules may be changed, our clinicians continue to serve the high-risk individuals who need Hospice of Southern Illinois’ services.
Our Care
Hospice of Southern Illinois has been and will continue to be your trusted provider of end-of-life care during this pandemic. We will remain open to provide care, support, and guidance. We have enhanced our services through telehealth and video connection services, virtual education, and online giving opportunities. We look forward to staying connected while we shelter in place.

It is our sincerest wish for your health, safety, and well-being so we can see you all as soon as it is safe.  
May is Nurses Month
We wouldn't be able to impact our communities without the skill, dedication, and heart of our clinicians. One component of our clinical team includes the nursing staff. During the current healthcare climate, they've faced obstacles and overcome them with the patients' well-being in their hearts. We are encouraging you to send supportive cards, notes, or photos to the team.
