UPDATE: With shovels in the ground, Tuesday marked the beginning of construction of Hospice of Wichita Falls’ new inpatient center.
Board members, employees, volunteers and community members celebrated a successful Legacy of Care Capital Campaign. The campaign exceeded it’s fundraising goal, coming in at $15.1 million dollars, coming from more than 750 donors. Efforts began back in 2017 and getting to this day, those involved with this project say they’re grateful.
“Thank the Lord we all were able to raise these funds, so Wichita Falls will be in good hands for the next many decades to come,” Hospice of Wichita Falls Campaign Co-Chair Craig Reynolds said.
“It speaks to the fact that this community understands just what Hospice of Wichita Falls is about, whether they’ve been impacted directly or indirectly. They understand, the care we provide, they’re willing to support that even into the future,” Hospice of Wichita Falls Director of Development Jake Truette said.
The project is expected to be complete in between 12 and 18 months.
Hospice of Wichita Falls is preparing to break ground on their new facility and want you to join them.
On Tuesday, June 11, at 10 a.m. they will have a groundbreaking ceremony at the old Sea Blue property (4400 Cypress Avenue) across from Rider High School, for their new building.
The new building will create 12 new inpatient suites, bringing the total number to 24, along with a central nurses station, numerous gathering spaces and much more.
