Four end-of-life beds for Comox Valley
Residents of the Comox Valley who are nearing the end of their lives will soon have better access to a range of end-of-life care services, including new community-based end-of-life beds.
Island Health today announced that four end-of-life beds will open in the Comox Valley by the end of 2014. Three end-of-life beds will also be located in Campbell River as part of a previous commitment to establish 40 community-based spaces prior to the opening of the new hospitals in 2017.
The four new beds in the Comox Valley will be located at The Views, an existing residential care facility operated by St. Joseph’s General Hospital.
