Hospice of North Idaho is expanding its campus in Coeur d’Alene with a new community building opening in late February. The two-story, 15,200-square-foot structure will be located adjacent to the Schneidmiller Hospice House.
In line with Hospice of North Idaho’s mission, Hospice staff will now be located on one property which will enhance care and patient accessibility. “We have held a long-term vision of one campus where our in-patient unit houses those in need of specialty end-of-life care and where our in-home hospice care nurses, social workers and the entire care team are right next door,” shares Kim Ransier, Executive Director for Hospice of North Idaho.
The community building will offer a spacious, 200-person community room that will allow more programming that was previously held off-campus due to lack of space. “We will be able to offer grief support groups with a designated space for our kids’ after school grief group,” Ransier says.
The project is a major undertaking made possible by generous gifts from the community and by
special funding and financing from the Idaho Health Facilities Authority and Mountain West
Bank. Architect Steve Roth, of Architects West, lead the development of the building plans in
close coordination with Hospice staff.
