Stocking Medical Supplies
Open Arms Hospice
Volunteers willing to help stock supplies in the medical supply room, small supply closets and the nurse stations are greatly needed. We would ideally like to have one volunteer each day of the week to help stock supplies. This would most likely be a 2-3 hours commitment one day a week. Extra training is required and we will have you shadow another volunteer who stocks so that you can learn where all of the supplies go in the various locations.
About Open Arms Hospice

The mission of Bon Secours Health System is to bring compassion to health care and to be good help to those in need, especially the poor and dying. As a system of caregivers, we commit ourselves to help bring people and communities to health and wholeness as part of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.
Open Arms Hospice is a type of end-of-life care that is palliative in nature (meaning to make comfortable) allowing the patient to die peacefully and comfortably in a home or homelike setting. Open Arms Hospice began as St. Francis Hospice, admitting our first two patients in July of 1991. In 2005, Greenville Hospital System and Bon Secours St. Francis Health System identified the growing need for hospice care. Embracing the strengths of both programs, Greenville Hospital System gifted its hospice program to St. Francis and thus formed Open Arms Hospice, a ministry of Bon Secours St. Francis Health System. The name of St. Francis Hospice officially changed their name in July of 2006. The two systems came together as one to help with the operation of the "McCall Hospice House." On July 19, 2007 Open Arms Hospice received their first patient to the new McCall Hospice House. This is a 30 bed facility located in Simpsonville.
