Honoring Our Sister Nurses

As we celebrate National Nurses Week, we thank God for the nurses who care for us in our Motherhouses and Care Centers.

We are also celebrating our Sisters who served as nurses during their ministries around the world. The Dominican Sisters of Peace founded three hospitals in Kansas: St. Rose Hospital,(Great Bend, 1903); St. Catherine (Garden City, 1931) and St. Joseph (Larned, 1951), as well as the Central Kansas Medical Center in Great Bend, KS. While management of these facilities has transferred to a lay organization, the Congregation still operates Mohun Health Care Center in Columbus, and Sansbury Care Center in St. Catharine, Kentucky. In addition, the Lourdes Senior Community in Waterford, Michigan, formerly sponsored by the Oxford Dominicans, includes under a single board four facilities: Lourdes Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center, Mendelson Home (assisted living), Clausen Manor (Alzheimer’s care), and Fox Manor (independent living).

While many of our Sisters have retired from nursing, they are still in active ministries of prayer, service, community leadership and more.
