MOUNT PLEASANT — Hospice Alliance announced it will begin accepting patients for the new Racine Hospice House on June 24.
Hospice Alliance previously had an eight-bed residential hospice facility in Kenosha County. The new Racine Hospice House is in the west wing of Lincoln Lutheran of Racine’s Becker Shoop campus at 6101 16th St. The renovation of a 3,500-square-foot area created five private patient rooms, each with home-like decor.
Hospice Alliance is an independent, community-owned, nonprofit organization serving Kenosha, Racine and eastern Walworth counties since 1981. Personalized care for patients and families who are facing life-limiting illnesses is available in the patient or loved one’s home, in care facilities and in hospice houses.
