Montrose County Board of Commissioners received an update on Monday on plans to build a new Home for Hospice of Western Colorado. The new 6300-feet big hospice center would be located near the hospital. Hospice spokesperson Nancy Hoganson says the bulk of the project will be paid for with a Community Development Block Grant for $400-thousand. Both Montrose and Ouray counties are participating.
Hoganson adds that the plan is to create the very first Hospice Center in Montrose County that will provide needed space for hospice clinicians, volunteers and our grief programs. The space will be a hub of activity with its lending library, volunteer trainings, counseling sessions, adult and children’s grief support.
