North Otago Hospice Hub Opens Its Doors
The Hospice Hub provides a purpose-built space for the Otago Community Hospice’s Patient Services, Hospice Education Services and a new Hospice Shop.
Otago Community Hospice CEO Ginny Green says the hub will be an amazing community asset.
“Our Hospice now has a sustainable, visible, functional and flexible home in North Otago. The shop, the training centre, the clinic space, the counselling room – all under one roof serving the North Otago Community.”
Ms Green credits the community’s generosity and support with bringing the hub to life.
“This all started with Sally-Ann Donnelly having a vision for Hospice in North Otago, and kick-starting the fundraising drive.
That was followed by a very generous bequest which enabled us to buy our building. And then in behind that, the Waitaki Hospice Care Trust, the Lions clubs, the Oamaru Licensing Trust, various church groups and the community have dug into a terrific fundraising drive.
We are so grateful the community has rallied behind this project. We are 100% committed to equitable delivery of specialist palliative care services to the people of North Otago.”
The hub opens its door tonight with a special launch to thank major contributors and those who work with Otago Community Hospice. The Oamaru Hospice Shop will open the doors to its new premises at the hub on Wednesday December 12th at midday.
