30 Years and Counting
For the past 30 years, Spartanburg Regional Hospice has been providing end-of-life care in the Upstate. When the program began in 1980, it was run by a handful of staff and volunteers and was not affiliated with then-named Spartanburg General Hospital. The program has grown to include more than 70 caring staff and support staff and more than 100 dedicated volunteers. Care is provided in our patients’ homes, as well as the beautiful 15-bed Hospice Home, which opened in December 2006.
Recognizing that circumstances may present an enormous challenge for our patients – and that the need for hospice services is growing as the aging population grows – six years ago we began to work toward the goal of building a hospice home. The community has contributed $6 million to the project – funding the entire cost of construction. More than $1.25 million was contributed by Spartanburg Regional employees, who were actually the largest contributor to the project. This was the first construction project Spartanburg Regional funded entirely through community donations.
One of the benefits of Spartanburg Regional Hospice is the bereavement support we offer our families and the community. Throughout the year we offer a series of support groups as well as special events designed to support those living with grief.
We are honored and blessed to have served our communities for 30 years and cherish the opportunity to provide comfort, care and compassion for many more years.
