Sacred Heart Home is a 35-bed skilled nursing facility operated by the
Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne. The Home is dedicated to providing
palliative care to persons afflicted with incurable cancer. It is open
to all who meet the Admissions Qualifications. There is no
discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, sex,
blindness or handicap.
Sacred Heart Home is a free home for persons who cannot afford to pay
for care. No payment of any kind is accepted from patients or their
families, nor from the government.
In accordance with their Rule, the Sisters place their trust in the
loving providence of God. That trust has never failed. Donations large
and small, from groups and individuals, have provided the necessary
funds to support the work.
The Sacred Heart Home was established in 1930 by the Dominican Sisters of Hawthorne.
Over the past 100 plus years, the Sisters have lovingly served the
special end-of-life needs of our patients and their family members in
