Mid Hudson Construction Management Breaks Ground on First Hospice Residence in Dutchess County
POUGHKEEPSIE, NY (February 24, 2022) – In partnership with Hudson Valley Hospice, Mid Hudson Construction Management (MHCM) announced that it has broken ground on a new $10 million Hospice House in Hyde Park, NY. The first of its kind in Dutchess County, the highly anticipated care facility is expected to open in early 2023, featuring 14 private suites that will support all levels of hospice care needed by patients at the end of life.
“After successfully working with MHCM to expand our administrative office in Hyde Park, we are thrilled to be working with them on this cutting-edge project,” said Michael Kaminski, president and CEO of Hudson Valley Hospice.
“The mission of the Hospice House is not only incredibly heartfelt, but crucially important for individuals and families in need of end-of-life care,” Ray Travis, president and CEO of MHCM. “We’re honored to help make that mission a reality.”
The spacious facility, located just north of Hudson Valley Hospice’s administrative office, will be situated on seven wooded acres. Each of the 400-square-foot private suites will feature a large en suite bathroom, individual control of the room temperature, and convertible chairs and sofas for loved ones to stay comfortably overnight. Each room will provide access out to a meditative garden, offering patients and their loved ones the opportunity to enjoy a tranquil outdoor environment. Two suites will be convertible for pediatric patient care to meet the needs of young patients and their loved ones.
The Hospice House will also feature designated common areas, such as spacious dining facilities, family and patient lounges and gathering rooms with coffee stations, microwaves, and refrigerators for family use.
“Our goal is to make this facility feel like a home,” said Scott Travis, vice president and COO of MHCM. “Our friends at Hudson Valley Hospice have explained that it’s not always possible to provide end-of-life care at a patient’s home, but that doesn’t mean that patient should have to go through it in an uncomfortable place. Our plan is to make this a state-of-the-art medical facility with all the charm and comfort of a cozy upstate NY home.”
