New Valley Hospice
Our current focus is to build and furnish our residential Hospice. A10 bedroom hospice will be located on a treed property adjacent to Valley Regional Hospital.
The designs and construction documents for the Hospice are now finalized and approved. The province has released a tender for the construction of the Hospice. It is scheduled to close on September 24, 2018.
The clearing of the land started on September 12, 2018 and is revealing a beautiful site for our Hospice to be built on a knoll overlooking Brooklyn Street and the Town of Kentville.
A hospice is more than a building - it is a philosophy - it is a community of care for the dying and the living.
As we work toward the opening of our hospice, we enter a new chapter of supporting enhancements that will ensure the best care possible for our community.
- Enhancing clinical care of patients with specialized equipment and therapies,
- Supporting hospice palliative care volunteer development and grief and bereavement programs,
- Enhancing the Hospice setting for family and patient comfort,
- Creating a learning "Hub" for families and patients, professional staff and the community
