Pronunciation of hospice

I heard Mickey Rourke say hospice as hah-spice (Lincoln Presbyterian Hospice) in Angel Heart. No dictionary countenances that and I don't know anybody else who says it like this. The funny thing is that such mispronunciation appeared in a movie, which has a script and is followed by so many people on the set, and nobody cringed when they heard that?
