After more than a decade of planning that started with Hospice Kingston and recently transitioned to the redevelopment team at Providence Care – construction is set to begin on Kingston’s first hospice residence.
Centrally located in Providence Village, the ten suite residence will provide 24-hour end-of-life care and support services in a comfortable, home-like setting to residents, their families and loved ones.
This new care setting will complement the continuum of high quality, compassionate palliative care provided at Providence Care – community hospice visiting and support programs, subacute palliative care at Providence Care Hospital, specialist palliative care consultation throughout the organization, and now a hospice residence to provide end-of-life care.
The construction contract has been awarded to Kingston-based Emmons & Mitchell Construction Limited. Construction will begin as soon as building permits are issued and it is hoped that the residence will be open in mid-2024.
Construction of the Hospice Residence has been made possible through donations from the community and provincial government funding. If you would like to support Hospice Kingston, please contact University Hospital Kingston Foundation at www.uhkf.ca.
