The Center for Hospice Care is building a new home along the Mishawaka River Walk.
Crews broke ground in August, and last week, steel beams were put in place for the 24,000 square foot facility that sits adjacent to Central Park.
When doors open in July, nearly 150 hospice employees will call this site home. The new building will also offer bereavement classes for family members suffering from the loss of a loved one.
"Through this facility we will actually have our administration offices, accounting, finance, IT, HR, the Life Transition Center, we are standing in, those we will all be functions we can perform right here in this space," says Michael Wargo from the Center for Hospice Care.
The City of Mishawaka will also improve Central Park's playground and restroom facilities, in addition to expanding the River Walk to the Cedar Street Bridge.
