MOUNT FOREST – Louise Marshall Hospital's upgraded palliative care suite is officially open for business.

"Jump-started" in 2018 through a $25,000 donation from late Mount Forest resident, Tony Daciuk for palliative care suite upgrades at Louise Marshall Hospital, the project began in 2019 but was subsequently delayed due to the hospital's redevelopment and expansion, as well as COVID.

Comprised of two rooms: a patient room and an adjoining family room, a news release on the project said the re-opened suite is equipped with new paint, flooring and furnishings, wall-mounted televisions, wall-to-wall windows looking out onto treed green space and a therapeutic light instalment above the bed featuring "a gentle and serene view of blue skies, clouds and treetops."

“We are grateful to Tony Daciuk, the other hospital donors and foundation who supported the palliative room refresh,” said hospital president and CEO Angela Stanley in the release. “The updated suite provides a more comfortable space, with a home-like feel for families and patients to spend quality time together.”
