Squamish will be the home of the Sea to Sky’s first palliative care facility, according to a provincial announcement on Tuesday, Jan. 3. The four-bed hospice will be going into an unused space in the Hilltop House, thanks in part to $400,000 in provincial funding as part of the $1 million Victoria has committed to palliative care across B.C. The province will also cover the centre’s operational costs. That leaves the Squamish Hospice Society with $1.34 million in fundraising before the facility’s anticipated 2019 opening.

“Ensuring that everyone has compassionate care as their life’s journey draws to a close is critically important,” said Jordan Sturdy, MLA for West Vancouver-Sea to Sky who made the announcement on behalf of Health Minister Terry Lake.
