Saint Joseph PACE Opens Sept. 1 in Indiana

August 17, 2016

Saint Joseph PACE opens on Sept. 1 in Mishawaka, IN. The Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE®) is part of the Saint Joseph Health System (SJHS).

“The strength of a community depends on the health of every individual in it, including our seniors," said Stephen Anderson, MD, chief medical officer and acting PACE medical director at SJHS. “This is a growing population that needs our attention. As a health system, we were able to answer that call.”

“Part of our approach is helping members learn how to care for themselves so they can continue to live independently,” said Stacey Newton, RN, executive director of Saint Joseph PACE, which will have a capacity to serve approximately 200 participants. “It is truly about bringing the right care at the right time and in the right setting.”

Saint Joseph PACE will serve seniors in St. Joseph County, as well as portions of Elkhart and Marshall counties.

“Being able to bring options to those we serve is our privilege. This is just another way we are able to reach out to a growing community of seniors in one of our regional health ministries,” said Kelly Hopkins, president and CEO of Trinity Health PACE.

SJHS, a member of Trinity Health, is a not-for-profit health care system that offers acute-based hospital care and post-acute services, including community wellness, physical rehabilitation, home care, physician clinics, outpatient services, independent and assisted senior living, memory care and affordable senior apartments.
