Mobile Health Clinic

Our mission is to provide care and healing for the whole person in service to all in our community. Our vision is to respect, & be caring & sensitive towards all, by honoring the dignity of each person especially the poor, vulnerable, and suffering. We bring healthcare to community neighborhoods hoping to break down barriers and create access to services.

Joseph’s Closet

Joseph’s Closet provides durable medical equipment free of charge to individuals in need throughout the greater Nashua community. Our trained volunteers offer a caring, gentle and confidential approach to distributing equipment. To make a donation, drop off equipment or for more information, please call (603) 579-5634.

We currently have the following guidelines in place to keep both our volunteers and visitors safe:

  • Masks must be worn by all visitors.
  • Volunteers must complete a screening with all visitors, which includes a temp check.
  • To allow for proper social distancing, only two visitors will be allowed in the closet at a time. All other visitors will be asked to wait in the lobby.

Joseph’s Closet is open for borrowing and donations on Tuesdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The closet is closed on all major holidays and follows the Nashua School District for weather related closures.

St. Joseph Hospital is proud to be a host site for Project SEARCH. This program provides adults with disabilities the opportunity to learn skills in a business setting that often lead to employment after graduation.

The Arts in the Atrium program helps our patients and families heal through the gift of art. This program also keeps St. Joseph Hospital connected to the greater Nashua community by offering opportunities to invite and welcome guests to the hospital for non-medical reasons.

Founded by the Grey Nuns, we continue to live their Mission by supporting the underprivileged in the greater Nashua community and partnering with local agencies to provide necessities to their clients. For location information on the Grey Nuns Thrift Shop, click here.
