About Hospice of Greater Saint John:

The Hospice of Greater Saint John (HGSJ) owns and operates Bobby's Hospice, a 10-bed palliative care facility in Saint John, New Brunswick. HGSJ offers grief and bereavement support services to families and loved ones, as well as residential hospice service to those needing palliative care. HGSJ's stated mission is to provide compassionate care that celebrates life.

In 2010, HGSJ opened the first residential hospice in Atlantic Canada, and since then it has cared for over 450 palliative patients, accounting for over 12,500 bed days. The average length of stay at Bobby’s Hospice is 25 days. Bobby’s has calculated the savings to government in 2014 as $2.3m, based on a hospital cost of $800/day and an additional $30,000/year in medication savings.

The HGSJ's medical team consists of 7 physicians that specialize in palliative care, providing the residents of the hospice with medical care 24 hours a day. The HGSJ estimates that caring for an average of 100 patients per year allows over 3,000 more patients to receive care at hospitals in the area by freeing up acute care hospital beds. HGSJ also operates The Hospice Shoppe, a boutique offering upscale second-hand items, most of which are donated from individuals in the community. All of the Shoppe's proceeds go towards funding care at Bobby's Hospice.
