Mishawaka, Ind. If you take a stroll along the river walk in Mishawaka you may be surprised to see a new building popping up. The new headquarters for the Center for Hospice is halfway finished.
It's been a four year project that'll finally be completed come August 20. The goal was to have one location for all the Hospice Centers rather than the three scattered around Michiana.
Now they say the next step after this project is over is to create a hospital specifically for hospice.
“We got a lot of work yet to do on the outside of the building the inside is nearly complete,” says Mike Wargo the Chief Operating Officer. “We've moved people from three separate leased locations here in the Mishawaka area now to this single owned space.”
And on Capitol Hill Tuesday hundreds of hospice advocates expressing why there can't be cuts to hospice programs.
