The Hospice Tree for Life is a long-standing tradition of St. Tammany Hospital Hospice. Each year at the annual Angels of Light event, the Tree for Life is lighted in a beautiful holiday ceremony. In addition, the tree is decorated with Tribute Angels. Each Tribute Angel represents a special person, whether living or deceased, who is being honored or memorialized by a friend or family member. Every light on the Tree for Life symbolizes the extraordinary care and comfort that is provided to all hospice patients.

Proceeds from Angels of Light benefit St. Tammany Hospital Hospice. The St. Tammany Hospital Hospice program provides palliative and supportive care to terminally ill patients and their families in the home through an interdisciplinary team that addresses physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs. Hospice unites a team of professionals, physicians, nurses, social workers, home health aides, clergy and trained volunteers into a compassionate alternative to traditional care. Hospice services are available to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.
