Hospice to open new Xenia center

Gazette News Report

XENIA — Hospice of Dayton’s Community Team Center in Xenia will hold a ribbon cutting and open house Wednesday, April 27.

While Ohio’s Hospice of Dayton services have been available in Greene County for 38 years, the new team center will bring support and presence closer to home for residents of Greene County. The new Community Team Center will increase accessibility and minimize travel, serving as a convenient center for staff members providing care to patients and families in the Greene County area.

The center enables staff members to restock supplies, attend team meetings and devote more time to patients at the bedside.

“Our community and team centers create a more convenient and accessible point in the community for staff members who are serving patients,” said President/CEO Kent Anderson. “Staff members can spend more time at the patient bedside because they are required to travel less. Providing easier access to all our services is in keeping with our mission to provide superior care and superior services to the patients and families we are privileged to serve.”

In addition to providing meeting, office space and supply storage for staff members, the site permits additional services to be more conveniently available to the community. Volunteer trainings, individual and group grief support programs, and community meetings will all be available in the new Community Team Center. Additional community and team Centers are in Franklin, Huber Heights, Centerville, and in the Wright-Dunbar preservation area of Dayton.

The open house is 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 32 W. Main St.
