The Province has provided $240,000 for improved hospice palliative care services in White Rock/South Surrey.
The BC Centre for Palliative Care distributed the funding to the Peace Arch Hospice Society towards development of its new supportive-care centre that will support patients and families requiring hospice care across White Rock and South Surrey and those who will use the new hospice beds being built in White Rock. Eight of the beds will be new, while seven are replacing existing hospice beds within Peace Arch Hospital. The supportive-care centre will provide training to volunteers to support all patients and families in the new hospice facility.
