The Hospice House Foundation of WNC, Inc. has scored a strategic victory toward making a hospice house facility a reality for our community and all of Western North Carolina. On Friday, September 25th, 2009, the State Medical Facilities Planning Commission unanimously voted to grant the Foundation’s Petition for six hospice inpatient beds for Macon County. This paves the way for the Foundation to apply for a Certificate of Need, and to move forward with its capital campaign in order to raise the funds needed to provide a twelve bed inpatient/residential hospice house facility.
Lillian Beckhans becomes an angel for other Macon, Swain, and Jackson residents when she made her recent gift to the Hospice House Foundation of WNC, Inc. to build a Hospice House in Franklin, NC. She gifted to the Hospice House Foundation of WNC because she wants Hospice caregivers to be able to help the dignity of many clients as they are living their last moments in a pleasant, comfortable and safe environment.
