News The Timmins Hospice Centre is Now Open SHARE ON: Mackenzie Read, contributor, Friday, Mar. 24th, 2017 Photo Credit: Mackenzie Read A new hospice centre is now open at the Timmins and District Hospital. This centre, within the hospital, has four beds where people can end their life in a comfortable and home like setting. Registered Nurse Chrissy Barbuto says not only is this a peaceful place for the patients, but also a comfortable place for the family to spend some last moments with their loved one. //www.mytimminsnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/hospice-1.mp3 Mayor Steve Black says the hospital has made the centre as comfortable and home like as possible. //www.mytimminsnow.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/hospice-2.mp3 Barbuto says having a separate hospice centre away from the rest of the hospital gives the nurses the time to really take care of everyone in the unit.
