A nonprofit hospital in Boston opened its doors for the first time in its 100-year history in November and now it is also helping to care for those in need.
In December, the St. Luke’s Hospital in Boston, which has operated since 1904, began serving the world-famous orphanage known as the “Pioneer of Hospice.”
The hospital’s staff, from medical staff to nurses, are all volunteers.
The orphanage’s staff also include a nurse, a social worker and an ambulance driver.
It was not an easy choice.
St. Luke was founded in 1904 and has been in operation since 1872.
It has treated over 100,000 patients, and in the last five years has served 1.4 million children.
In the last six years, it has served almost 8 million children in the United States, according to the American Hospital Association.
It has also served children from families of some of the country’s wealthiest people.
In 2016, St. Jude Hospital and Clinics in St. Louis opened a new pediatric intensive care unit.
In 2017, it opened the Children’s Hospital of Boston’s pediatric intensive-care unit.
And in 2018, the hospital opened the new St. John the Baptist Children’s Medical Center.
In 2018, St Luke’s became the first hospital in the world to accept Medicaid, an initiative that is a model for other hospitals.
In 2019, the orphanages staff also started the first program of its kind in the state of Colorado to provide free and discounted care to homeless people.
And recently, St John the Bapt Children’s Children’s Memorial Hospital and Children’s Hospice Care Center opened its first hospice.
