A Covenant Hospice Milestone…

Ok, today is the kind of day that will make us add a “milestone” to our Facebook Timeline. It’s the type of day that takes a lot of preparation from dedicated staff and volunteers. It’s a day that we have been planning for a long time now. I actually remember thinking about it many nights back in December wondering how it was all going to come together. So…what’s going on??

Today is our Open House and Ribbon Cutting for the Covenant Hospice Inpatient and Palliative Care Center at Bay Medical Center – Sacred Heart Health System. Long formal name? Yeah, kinda. But trust me, this place is really going to make a difference in the lives of many patients and families. First of all, it’s staffed by caring Covenant Hospice staff 24-hours-a-day. Patients typically admitted to the Care Center will need help controlling the symptoms of their diagnosis or have family that is in need of respite care. We know a little something about inpatient care because we have two special places in Pensacola: the Covenant Hospice Inpatient and Palliative Care Center at West Florida Hospital and the Joyce Goldenberg Inpatient Residence that have been very successful in helping comfort patients and family members during life-limiting illness.

Oh and did I mention it’s absolutely gorgeous? It’s beautifully furnished and includes a place for family to do their laundry, a play area for the kids, refreshment center and more. We had to make it perfect and accommodating for family and friends because visiting hours are unlimited they are always welcome. If you want to check it out for yourself, join us today from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. for our Open House and Ribbon Cutting on the 3rd Floor (S) of Bay Medical Center – Sacred Heart Health System. Thank you to everyone who has helped bring this project to realization, we could not be more proud of this partnership and the extraordinary place we have created to “add life to days when days can no longer be added to life.” If you are interested in volunteering or woud like to learn more about the Care Center, please call 850-785-5550.
