The hospice of John N. Neumann
The hospice of John N. Neumann is o non-state medical institution built in the premises of the convent of the nuns of the order of St. Charles of Boromei. It is named after a Prachatice native St. John N. Neumann, who was born in 1811 in the premises of the present hospice. At the age of 25 he left for the USA where he later became a bishop in Philadelphia. In 1977 he was canonized for his excellent work and he became the first saint of the North American continent.

The hospice serves for the patients suffering from the advanced incurable diseases. Their ( most often oncological ) diseases cause them such trouble which doesn´t call for the cure in hospital and it is impossible to manage it at home.

In hospice patients are provided with the palliative ( symptomatic ) cure of the symptoms accompanying the disease, especially pain cure.

The medical staff consisted of the doctors, nurses, social workers and others guarantee to the patients that they won´t suffer from the unbearable pain, that their human dignity will be kept and that they won´t stay alone at the end of their lives.

There are 4 double bedrooms and 22 single bedrooms with extra beds for family members whose presence is always welcomed in the hospice.

The visiting hours are indefinite - 24 hours a day.

The daily regime is maximally adapted to the needs of the patient.

There is also an advice centre and an aids hire at disposal, which support the development of the family care for the seriously ill patients.

The medical insurance companies bear about the half of the costs for a bed and a day. The hospice must raise money for other remedies from the donors, sponsors and also the patients contributein a small amount of money to the stay in the hospice.

We thank all generous and charitable people who have helped us so far and who still help us.
