Stellenbosch Hospice is now a five-star, COHSASA (Council for Health Service Accreditation for Southern Africa ) accredited Hospice.Established by Stellenbosch Rotary Club, we initially operated out of a tiny garage, with our first patients benefiting from the compassionate care of Sister Libby Reynecke.

The dream of providing a holistic service to the whole Stellenbosch Community became a reality in 1992 through a partnership with Stellenbosch District Hospital, who kindly allocated a downstairs wing to accommodate the new Hospice administrative offices,
and later a small  two-bed In Patient Unit, which is now a 12 bed In Patient Unit. Major demands for our services have resulted in macro growth, to the extent that we now have 104 staff,  supported by 40 volunteers, who together serve an average of 840 patients per month.
