Emmanuel Hospice is grateful to those who have served our country. We know that the memories of service last a lifetime and that the friendships and bonds between veterans are powerful. No one else can truly understand the sacrifice that has been made but those who sacrificed alongside you.

In hospice, we have the honor of thanking our veterans one last time before they pass on to the next life. Our patients love talking about their military experience and these memories seem to stay fresh in their mind long after other memories fade away. At Emmanuel Hospice veteran volunteers are paired with our veteran hospice patients so our patients can reminisce and talk about their experience with someone who truly understands. At the same time, touching inter generational friendships are made, new stories are shared, both parties learn from one another, and our patients can rest knowing their sacrifice is not forgotten.

Emmanuel Hospice is an interfaith, non-profit hospice. We are a close knit team and our staff, volunteers, and patients are like family to us. We serve patients all over West Michigan in private homes and in facilities.

Mission Statement

The mission of Emmanuel Hospice, an interfaith partnership, is to provide exemplary spiritual and physical care creating a peaceful experience for the dying and their loved ones.

Description

Why Choose Emmanuel Hospice?

Emmanuel Hospice is an interfaith collaboration of four local organizations with over 200 years of combined experience providing quality health care services in West Michigan.

St. Ann’s, Clark, Porter Hills and Sunset have joined together to deliver the highest level of holistic care to those who have reached the end of life.

The foundation of our partnership is rooted in common missions and values. This has enabled us, as like-minded organizations, to share resources, skills and expertise to better serve those in our community with a life-limiting illness or condition.

We are united in our aspiration to create a peaceful experience in any setting for the dying and their loved ones by providing exemplary spiritual and physical care. Our team is intensely focused on what is most important to each patient and family, and we encourage those we serve to celebrate life.

We begin every relationship by asking "How do you want to LIVE?", then strive to fulfill the individual wishes of our patients and their families.
