Our work today
The Sisters Hospitallers are a global force for care and compassion, operating in 27 countries worldwide. Thanks to the generosity of the kind people who support our work, our Sisters, medical staff and volunteers bring vital medical care to patients of all ages, living with a wide range of physical and mental conditions.
Putting our faith into powerful action
Inspired by the selfless dedication of our founder, Benedict Menni, and by the charism of Hospitality that he embodied, we provide specialist care in these areas:
- Care for the elderly
- Maternity services
- Psychiatric/mental health care
- Special educational needs
- General medicine
Our Generalate is based in Rome and our Congregation is divided into a number of individual canonical provinces. The English Province is composed of care homes, hospitals and health centres in England, Ghana and Liberia.
The scope and scale of our work is growing along with the need for our help, so we are always looking for passionate dedicated people to join our cause, either as volunteers, as Sisters or as supporters – all these people make our Hospitality possible.
