‘Home away from home’ for families

03-01-13 Big Bend Hospice DMH room

The friends and church family of St. Johns Christian Fellowship Church gathered at Doctors’ Memorial Hospital (DMH) on Valentine’s Day to dedicate room #206 to Big Bend Hospice and its patients.

Led by St. Johns Christian Fellowship Church family, the room was furnished “with a comfortable feeling” to help families of Big Bend Hospice have a “home-away-from-home” during difficult times in their lives, organizers said. The room was dedicated especially for Big Bend Hospice patients and their families, but all hospice patients will be welcome.
