Valdosta - A lofty donation will help one South Georgia hospital provide better Hospice care.

Harley Langdale, Jr. gave South Georgia Medical Center $750,000 Thursday to help build a new Hospice House. The facility will provide inpatient nursing care for terminally ill patients in a home-like setting and will be named the Langdale Hospice House.

"We'll be able to provide acute care for people during a period of crisis, short term respite, and long term residential care for persons under Hospice services," said Susan Cherry, Hospice Director.

The Langdale Hospice House will be built across from the Greenleaf outpatient center on Pineview Drive. Hospital officials hope to break ground early next year.
