St. Luke Missionary Hospice, quality end-of-life care provider of the Lowcountry, welcomes local residents and business owners to the opening of their first office location in the Beaufort area. A grand opening celebration for the entire community will take place at the Beaufort, St. Luke Missionary Hospice office located on 711 B Charles St. on Thursday, October 1 from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. Those attending will have the opportunity to meet the SLMH staff, enjoy hors d’oeuvres and beverages and tour the new location that just made its home within the Beaufort community. SLMH has added local staff members, including registered nurses, social workers, certified aides and a spiritual care advisor, to provide patient and family care. These new staff, along with members of the St. Luke Missionary Hospice leadership team, will be available at the event to discuss St. Luke’s service offerings in Beaufort and answer any questions. The organization is also seeking volunteers in the area with a range of opportunities. Additional information on volunteering will be provided during the grand opening celebration.

“This new office provides us with a centralized location for our care teams, as well as a venue to offer grief counseling, host our volunteers and better serve the community,” said Steven Frisch, St. Luke’s Health Care Administrator and Okatie resident. “We are excited to welcome the public to not only tour our new space, but to learn more about the services we offer to all those in need and to see first-hand our commitment to providing the highest standard of care.”
