The name “Good Shepherd Hospice” was created by our company founder who was touched by a moving quote from Abraham Lincoln, “I have been driven to my knees many times by the overwhelming conviction that I have nowhere else to go”. Wanting a name that would impart a message of comfort to patients and families and encourage staff to aspire to care for patients as lovingly as possible the image of The Good Shepherd spoke to this need.
