The SBL Health Foundation is pleased to announce that your 2021 Holiday Festival donation will support an endowment for our new Hospice House to be built on the main campus at Sarah Bush Lincoln. Your sponsorship helps those with limited resources pay for their stay.

The Hospice House will be a warm and inviting 14,470 square-foot facility complete with eight spacious private suites, a family gathering space, beautiful landscaping and more to help make patients’ last days as comfortable as possible.

There is a tremendous need in our area for a hospice house, and Sarah Bush Lincoln was awarded one of the only remaining licenses in downstate Illinois to build a final home for people on hospice care. Your donation will directly impact families throughout East Central and Southern Illinois, providing them with a home-like, peaceful place to spend their last days with loved ones.

For more information please call the SBL Health Foundation at 217-258-2511.
