NEWSCouncil moves ahead with plan for Dundas children’s hospice – Hamilton Spectator
The city will negotiate a below-market lease for a future children’s hospice on municipal land in Dundas with the goal of firming up an agreement in coming months. Kemp Care Network aims to build the pediatric hospice on the 41 South St. W. parcel by Wentworth Lodge, one of the city’s two municipally run long-term care homes. The future pediatric hospice will fill a regional gap in services, said Doug Mattina, a senior director with the hospice network.

News & Updates
“We have one of the world’s best children’s hospitals yet there is no children’s hospice to match the kind of care children and families need when facing serious illness. Whether you have children, nieces, nephews, brothers or sisters, we have all been touched by their innocence and vulnerability. There is no greater time of need for children and families when they are sick and faced with the news that their life will be cut short. I hope to inspire everyone to give what they can.”
