20 new beds are coming to three future hospice providers across Durham Region. MPP John Fraser made the announcement at the site of the future Oak Ridges hospice in Port Perry, where construction is expected to begin in the fall. Clarington Hospice will also be receiving beds, as well as a new hospice in Whitby, to be built by the Victorian Order of Nurses. At present, there are no hospice services in the region, leaving residents to rely on in-home hospice care, or hospital palliative care.
