Hendrick Hospice Care Center
Hendrick Hospice Care announced plans to construct a new state-of-the-art hospice care facility at its 30th Anniversary Celebration, March 3.
As the need for end-of-life care continues to grow, Hendrick Hospice Care recognizes the importance to provide more inpatient beds to area residents choosing hospice.
The single story, 40,800 square-feet complex will be located two blocks from the main campus, and include inpatient hospice care, bereavement center, home care offices, space for volunteer training, common areas for families and visitors and extensive outdoor landscaping. The inpatient area will have 16 rooms, large enough for families to comfortably stay with their loved ones, with the potential of expansion to eight additional rooms.
The Hendrick Hospice Care Center will be situated on 8.7 acres and will house all Hospice services. Currently, lack of space requires bereavement and grief programs to meet off campus.
The current facilities do not include a dedicated area for educational sessions and has very limited space for family gatherings. Additionally, the Hospice team is separated into three buildings located several blocks from the main hospital campus.
Hendrick Hospice Care Center will include:
- 16 patient rooms (with potential expansion for eight additional rooms)
- Adult Family Room
- Teen Family Room
- Kids Family Room
- Bereavement Center and Library
- Administrative and Home Care offices
- Community Room
- Counseling Room
- Intensive outdoor landscaping
Groundbreaking is scheduled for February 2015, with a projected opening date of May 2016.
Donations can be made to Hendrick Medical Center Foundation at 1900 Pine St., Abilene, TX 79601.
