The Rotary Club of Stratford convened a public meeting that struck a steering committee to determine the feasibility of creating a residential hospice for Perth County.
The steering committee submitted a proposal for a ten bed residential hospice to the South West Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).
As Perth County is part of the sub LHIN area of Huron Perth, the LHIN ultimately required a joint Residential Hospice proposal for the counties of Huron and Perth.
The LHIN struck a hospice sub-committee to develop a joint unified Huron Perth solution resulting in the hiring of consultant Lough Barnes.
Tri County Mennonite Homes generously leases, for $1 a year, the land for the new residential hospice at their Greenwood Court location at 80 Greenwood Drive in Stratford.
The LHIN board approved Lough Barnes’ Business Plan and authorized operational funding for both an 8-bed hospice in Stratford and a 4-bed hospice in Central Huron.
Architects ROA Studio provided the building design for General Contractor Agri-Urban Buildings Incorporated (AUBI) who commenced construction.
The Rotary Hospice officially opened its doors, hosting celebratory open houses for the community to see the beautiful facility made possible by their support.
The hospice began operation and began providing care for its first residents.
