Midwest Health Foundation/St. Thomas Hospice – Hinsdale, IL

The grant will help remove financial barriers and increase equity in access to end-of-life care by providing uncompensated hospice services to all qualified applicants throughout the communities it serves with the establishment of a Charity Care Program. It will attempt to eliminate the decline in use of hospice-appropriate services in individuals who cannot afford hospice care.

St. Thomas Hospice works to ensure patients, and their loved ones, are cared for in body, mind, and spirit. Hospice team members aim to help loved ones feel as comfortable as possible while supporting the whole family.
