Our Hospice Relocating to New Office in Jennings County

(For Immediate Release: December 12, 2022)
Our Hospice of South Central Indiana is relocating to a new office space in Jennings County. As
of December 15, 2022, the Our Hospice North Vernon office is relocating to 753 North State
Street in North Vernon, Indiana in the in the building alongside the Eye Care Group. “We are
excited to have found a new office location as a home base for our care teams who serve
Jennings and the surrounding counties extending our care to the Ohio and Kentucky borders. “It
is important we have an office location as a central point for our care staff of nurses, home
health aides, social workers, chaplains and volunteers as they provide care in the homes and
long-term care facilities in the surrounding region,” said Laura Leonard, President of Our
Hospice of South Central Indiana.
Our Hospice, founded in 1980, opened a branch office in Jennings County in 1991. Since the
pandemic, we have improved operating efficiencies and increased remote work capabilities
which decreased our need for square footage. “Most of our staff works remotely in the homes
and the facilities where our patients reside. This, along with new remote technologies in place,
allows us to downsize our office footprint, while maintaining a much needed office space for
meetings, consultations, supplies and materials,” said Leonard.
“Our Hospice has a long relationship with Jennings County, Leonard continued, including the
annual Gala. On February 4, 2023, we will be celebrating the 25 th Anniversary of the Jennings
County Gala which, over the past 24 years has raised $942,439 for the patients and families
cared for by our North Vernon staff. Additionally, we will crown our 25 th Hospice Queen at this
year’s event for the high school queen candidate that raises the most funds. We have local ties
to the Jennings County Community Relations Committee who assists us with this annual event
including: Jessica Bailey, Roxanne Elsner, Alisa Gasper, Greg Hicks, Lisa Moore, Gene
Rudicel, Brian Sawyer, and Sandy Vance. They support our work by promoting the Gala,
educating people about hospice, and raising much-needed funds for our not-for-profit

Our Hospice of South Central Indiana is not-for-profit, community-based hospice providing care to
individuals with a life-limiting condition and their families since 1980. We care for our patients and families in 16 counties from offices in Columbus, North Vernon and Greensburg.

The new, local office space will support work in deploying care teams to those who are
managing a serious illness. We work closely with Ascension North Vernon, St Elizabeth’s,
King’s Daughters, and Margaret Mary Hospitals as well as local physicians, and extended and
assisted living facilities in seven contiguous counties. The North Vernon team cares for
approximately 350 individuals annually providing medical care, emotional and social support,
and bereavement services to patients and families.
“We are excited to announce our move to our new location and will be planning a public open
house early next year. We look forward to serving the Jennings community and the surrounding
counties for many years to come,” said Leonard.
