Open Arms Hospice

Open Arms Hospice, a ministry of Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, provides the kind of care, support, and nurturing for patients and their families that helps ease the suffering of a life-limiting disease. We never attempt to cure the terminal patient, nor do we ever provide false hope. Rather, we provide care beyond the cure to ensure that life is full and worthwhile until the end. We provide both in-home care and inpatient care at the McCall Hospice House of Greenville.

 

History of Open Arms Hospice

Open Arms Hospice is an established hospice program that has the distinction of being the first hospice program in Greenville County. We began as two separate programs - St. Francis Hospice, created in 1991, and Greenville Hospital System Hospice, created in 1983.
 
In 2005, Greenville Hospital System and Bon Secours St. Francis Health System identified the growing community need for hospice care. Embracing the strengths of each program, Greenville Hospital System gifted its hospice program to St. Francis and thus formed Open Arms Hospice, a ministry of the Bon Secours St. Francis Health System.
 
Open Arms Hospice seeks to continue the tradition of both health systems and the founding ministry of Bon Secours Ministries to provide comforting care to those suffering a life-limiting illness.
