New Life Hospice Center of St. Joseph


While most people receive hospice care in their homes, the New Life Hospice Center of St. Joseph provides an actual physical location for patients whose needs would be better met there. It is a 13-bed inpatient facility located on the west campus of Mercy Regional Medical Center in Lorain, Ohio.
