ST. LOUIS, Mo., June 3, 2019 /Christian Newswire/ -- Catholic Healthcare International has commenced implementation of its inspired vision to replicate a unique model of healthcare delivery, established by the beloved St. Padre Pio in Italy, called The Home for the Relief of Suffering. You can learn more about our exciting activities on our dynamic new website:

Under the Episcopal leadership of Cardinal Raymond Burke and Bishop Earl Boyea, Catholic Healthcare International, the Diocese of Lansing, the Terri Schiavo Life & Hope Network & the Christ Medicus Foundation are collaborating to implement this Casa USA vision, which will shine as a "Beacon of Light" of faithful Catholic healthcare delivery for all Catholic providers of medical care and medical education in the US.

Catholic Healthcare International has been given sole permission by St. Pio's hospital in Italy to implement this vision in the United States. Bishop Boyea has agreed to donate land owned by the Diocese of Lansing in the Howell, Michigan area to be the home of the Casa USA campus.
