Located at the former St. Casimir’s Church in Endicott, Mercy House provides hospice care to patients who cannot remain in their own homes, allowing them to rest comfortably surrounded by family and friends. The $1.2 million project was funded through a $250 thousand capital grant from Assemblywoman Lupardo, as well as donations from Lourdes Hospital, local charities, foundations, and businesses. The ten-bed home is staffed by both professionals and trained volunteers, and is equipped with a kitchen, library, chapel, and other amenities for residents and their families. Each resident has their own room for comfort and privacy, and 24-hour care will be provided on site.
