Lower Cape Fear Hospice Gets
OK To Build Inpatient Facility
Lower Cape Fear Hospice has re
ceived the slate certificate of need
for permission to construct a free
standing 12-bed inpatient hospice
facility in Wilmington.
The certificate was based on four
? he unique care needs of termi
nally ill patients for care focusing on
the physical, emotional, social and
spiritual needs of the patient and
? financial efficiency of care, in
that hospice care focuses on the re
lief of pain rather than high-tech, ex
? respite for the family when
caregiving at home becomes diffi
? filling the gap between home
For many families, the hospice fa
cility would provide care and ser
vices for patients whose death is im
minent, when home care is not feasi
ble. "The community needs a facili
ty where persons like these could go
to die with human dignity while re
ceiving quality care and attention,"
said LCF Hospice spokesman Jean
A building committee of board
members, staff and volunteers has
been formed, and its members are
researching and visiting hospicc in
patient units in California, Virginia,
l^ouisiana, Washington and Georgia,
as well as facilities in Greensboro,
Charlotte, Asheville and Lenoir.
The architectural firm of Ligon
Flynn has been selected to design
the facility, and plans for a capital
campaign are under way.
LCF Hospice was founded by Dr.
Daniel Gottovi in the late 1970s.
The original steering committee be
came the first board of directors
when the organization was incorpo
rated in 1978 to serve Brunswick,
New Hanover and Pender counties.
Hospice's first patient, a young
woman with cancer, was admitted
July 1. 1980.
The organization currently serves
six counties in southeastern North
Carolina, including Brunswick, with
offices in each county.
It is a community-based not-for
profit agency governed by a volun
teer board of directors.
