There is an increasing need in our community for palliative care for those diagnosed with terminal illnesses as well as emotional support for their loved ones. While a significant part of Sundale’s population currently receive these services, the board of directors believes Sundale needs a dedicated palliative care unit.
In 2008, a feasibility study projected success for a $2.5 million capital campaign to fund the construction and equipping of a very special wing to be added to Sundale.
Fifteen private rooms in a “homelike” setting to better meet the needs of the terminally ill and the emotional needs of their family members. Sundale will continue to partner with area Hospice organizations to provide continuity in medical treatment during the final states of life as well as bereavement counseling.
