115 Years of Caring for our Community
We have made a difference in our community for over 115 years, one patient at a time.
It started with the determination of The Four Brooklyn Ladies in 1907, and today we pride ourselves on continuing their work. Every day we provide our patients and their families encouragement on their road to recovery, respect when we enter their homes, compassion through their journey and, when we can, happiness at their bedside.
Wherever and whenever a difference can be made, we have been there. Our value is simple. Caring is Doing.
Chris was shocked to learn he had a rare form of renal cancer that couldn’t be treated. No 25-year-old ever expects to need hospice. With just months to live, he turned to MJHS for his care. He wound up inspiring the world.
115 years ago, four courageous women in Brooklyn saw people desperately needing care and loving-kindness. Determined to do something, they made it their mission to change what they saw.
Life at 25 years old is often different from how you experience it at 85 years old. Especially as you age, you want to be around people who care about you, listen to you, understand what you’ve been through, and treat you with respect.
