The Hospice Society of Greater Halifax and Nova Scotia Health Authority have signed an agreement to collaborate on the establishment of a 10-bed residential hospice in Halifax.

The goal is to open the hospice in December, 2017. Hospice Halifax will raise the capital and manage the development of the structure on Francklyn Street in South End Halifax. Current plans propose renovating and joining the two residences on the property (618 and 620 Francklyn St.) to create one 12,750-square foot, 10-bed residential hospice.

Hospice Halifax will launch a capital campaign in the near future to raise the $6 million dollars required for the renovation and development of the hospice residence. You can learn more about the hospice and make a donation by visiting http://hospicehalifax.org/
