Hospice House aims to bring more awareness of hospice care as a viable choice for terminally ill patients by implementing a regional network of hospice care facilities. Within the network, each facility will draw upon and participate in their respective neighborhoods effectively engaging the community. A prototype facility has been developed that would specialize in caring for patients with heart and lung degenerative diseases. Located in the Greater Third Ward, this facility draws upon the vernacular of the area as well as hospice and medical construction as precedents in its planning and form.
