Valdosta -- Hospice of South Georgia will soon be opening the doors to the new Langdale Hospice House.
The $3.5 million project will provide 15 private patient rooms, a library, family room and dining room for terminally ill patients.
South Georgia Medical Center officials expect the Hospice house to be fully operational by late June.
"This is unlike any other inpatient facility in South Georgia, because this is the first Hospice house in our South Georgia community," said Hospice Community Liaison Katie Hardin.
Langdale Hospice House will have its ribbon-cutting at 2:00 PM Sunday.
