East End Hospice will celebrate the groundbreaking for its new inpatient facility in Quiogue on Friday, July 25, at 11 a.m. at 1 Meeting House Road in Westhampton.
The new facility will enhance and broaden the scope of East End Hospice’s existing services, offering a homelike setting for patients to spend their last days.
The space allows hospice professionals and trained volunteers to provide 24-hour acute care, as well as social, emotional and spiritual support for patients and their families.
Eight private rooms will be equipped to manage the complex needs of the critically ill while providing comfortable accommodations for patients and family. It includes a spa room with a soaking tub and a consultation room for intimate gatherings, along with common areas, including a sunroom, library, and gardens for use by family and visitors.
The building has been designed by Roger Ferris + Partners, an architectural firm known not only for its architecture but for its interior design and master planning services for the private and public sectors. The firm has won over 40 regional and national awards and international citations, and is recognized as a world leader in both commercial and residential architecture.
