First Halifax Hospice Set to Open in early April

After many years of fundraising and planning, nurses and physicians have confirmed that the very first hospice in Halifax will open for patients April 8, 2019.

Construction on the 10-bedroom facility on Francklyn Street is scheduled for completion by the end of the month, with early application procedures set to begin March 27.

“We’re pretty excited about what’s about to happen here,” said Hospice Halifax CEO Gordon Neal, during a media tour of the site Tuesday. “It’s been a long time coming. People have worked a long time. There’s going to be lots of celebrations on the day we open.

In addition to a number of construction delays, Neal said fundraising for the hospice was the greatest obstacle to its fruition -– partially due to a lack of understanding in Nova Scotia about what a hospice is.

Hospice Halifax is a place for terminal patients to spend their last few weeks in comfort when their care needs become too burdensome to stay at home, but they don’t wish to pass in a hospital. The new site will be the first hospice in Nova Scotia.
