Valdosta -- Over a decade ago, the staff of the Hospice of South Georgia in Valdosta dreamed of building a house that would provide a last comfortable home for patients facing the end of their lives.

Today, they are one step closer to seeing their dream become reality, as hospital associates and benefactors broke ground for a new facility. The first in-patient hospice in the region, the Langdale Hospice House, will offer 24 hour care to the 16 terminally ill patients in a home-like setting.

Our care will focus on their dignity and their comfort and will be family directed in a very peaceful environment," said Director Susan Cherry. "It will be state of the art medical care but it will be very indusive to family and quiet care"

The Langdale House will serve up to eight counties and create at least fifteen new jobs. Construction is scheduled to begin this summer and open in the summer of 2007.
