Construction beginning on Woltz Hospice Home

October 1st, 2007 · No Comments

A groundbreaking ceremony at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 4, will mark the official start of construction on The Joan & Howard Woltz Hospice Home at 945 Zephyr Road (adjacent to Surry Central Middle School) in Dobson.

The inpatient and residential facility will serve patients at the end of life in Surry, Yadkin and surrounding counties. The plan for the hospice home calls for 20 patient rooms with access to the outside grounds, large kitchen areas so groups can dine together, a movie room for sharing videos together, a play area for children, RV hookups for visitors from out of town and other amenities to help families through the end of a loved one’s days.

Hospice has raised nearly $3 million toward the cost of building the home, but another $2 million will be needed
to cover those expenses.

The project is being developed by Mountain Valley Hospice & Palliative Care. Barbara Chatham and Robert Merritt are the honorary fund-raising campaign chairmen. C. Richard Vaughn is the campaign chairman.
