New Palliative Care Unit – Saint Martha’s Regional Hospital – Antigonish

The renovation, which began in January, 2018, created a six-bed palliative care unit.

St Martha’s Regional Hospital Foundation contributed $600,000 for capital costs, while St Martha’s Regional Hospital Auxiliary donated $150,000 in furnishings and equipment.

In addition to medical equipment and necessary staff space requirements, the new unit includes areas for families and volunteers. Amenities such as shower and laundry facilities allow families and friends to remain on the unit, close to their loved ones in care.

The patient rooms are equipped with new televisions, family space and pull-out couches for overnight stays. The new unit also has a full kitchen, computer room and quiet spaces throughout and reflects a person-centred, serene and homelike environment.
