Baptist Trinity Hospice House and Center for Good Grief

Baptist Trinity Hospice House and Center for Good Grief

On October 29, 2011, Baptist celebrated the first anniversary of the area's first residential hospice, the Baptist Trinity Hospice House, and the Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief, a comprehensive bereavement center located adjacent to the Hospice House. The 24-bed Hospice House has served more than 178 patients and their families, and the Center for Good Grief has served more than 2,000 individuals.

The Hospice House is designed to provide care in a home-like setting. Oxygen is camouflaged behind artwork, and the furnishings resemble what you might see in a home. The design allows residents in wheelchairs ease of movement when going outside to enjoy the scenery.
The Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief offers grief counseling, workshops, and grief camps for children, teens and adults—free of charge. The Center is open to the entire community, including the families of Hospice House residents.
