Community Home Health & Hospice was awarded a $50,000 grant from The Honorable Frank L and Arlene G Price Foundation for the Dr. Richard Nau Hospice Care Center Capital Campaign. The Foundation’s award brings the total raised for the Campaign to $2,004,445.
The Dr. Richard Nau Hospice Care Center Capital Campaign aims to remodel Washington state’s first hospice facility by increasing patient room size by 78%, adding more infection control measures such as anterooms to don and doff PPE and negative air pressure rooms, and providing a more peaceful space for families by creating a new, hidden patient entrance and exit, updating the family room by adding a children’s room, and building a Multi-Faith Chapel with an attached garden.
“We are grateful for The Price Foundation’s support for the Dr. Richard Nau Hospice Care Center Capital Campaign,” said Director of Community Development Jodie Zelazny. “This hospice care center has cared for generations of families since it was built by the community in 1984. It’s heartwarming to see the community joining forces again to keep this center up to date so it can continue to care for them far into the future.”
