Peterborough’s Community Hospice Nominated

Peterborough – Hospice Peterborough is once again honoured to be nominated for the prestigious Chamber of Commerce Excellence Awards, this time in the category of Commercial Development and Renovation.

Having been bestowed with the 2018 Not-for-Profit Excellence Award last year, Hospice Peterborough was surprised and delighted to be nominated again in 2019.

“The experience of being nominated and chosen was a highlight for our organization last year and a joyous acknowledgment of many, many years of hard work and perseverance. The Chamber of Commerce awards generate not only community recognition but appreciation for the work of hospice, it is affirming and humbling,” said Shelley Barrie, Hospice Peterborough, Board Chair.

To be acknowledged in this category for the new Hospice Peterborough home is especially meaningful and an opportunity to further be grateful to the community.

Having newly opened in March of this year, the building is the result of 15 years of dreaming, planning and action. The vision of enhancing hospice service to include 24/7 end of life care was realized for individuals and families when admissions began on April 9th, this care helps to make every moment matter.

The house is located at 325 London Street. It is truly a community achievement that was only possible through the generosity of donors, businesses, government, volunteers, staff and supporters. Design and construction partners, Lett Architect and Mortlock Construction deserve recognition for designing and building this wonderful facility and for helping to keep the dream alive through incredible and unimaginable challenges.

The home like setting was designed to be a safe place where good and lasting memories continue to be made for our clients, their family members, and for staff and volunteers. Hospice Peterborough’s programs and services are offered free of charge to residents of all ages living within the City and County of Peterborough.

The tremendous promotion Hospice Peterborough received last year, through the Chamber of Commerce awards, the Peterborough Examiner, social media, and event video, highlighted 30 years of serving Peterborough City and County.

Hospice Peterborough is proud to share this esteemed nomination with supporters and the entire community.
