Benincasa, meaning “Good Home,” is a valuable non-profit ministry intended to assist those who come to Garden City for healthcare. Like a Ronald McDonald House, Benincasa provides thousands of nights of accommodations to hundreds of St. Catherine Hospital patients’ families and caretakers each year. The patients’ families come to this “home-away-from-home” from varying distances and for varying lengths of stays. For some it may be only a few days of accommodations while the patient is hospitalized, while for others it may be as many as 10 to 12 weeks of accommodation for both the patient and the family while here for outpatient Wound Care or Cancer Center treatments. At Benincasa our goal is simple. We want to provide patients and their families both the emotional support needed because of trauma and illness and the accommodations needed to keep these people from financial compromise.
