Breaking ground for final phase
A hospice home is where the terminally ill go for their last days. As word spreads and the population grows, the Oconee Hospice of the Foothills anticipates a need for more patient rooms. At 10 tomorrow morning, ground will be broken for the third and final phase of the Cottingham House. And officials say they can anticipate that generous giving on part of the community will take care of all costs. Planned is an expansion from 15 to 25 beds. Until the project can qualify for a state certificate of need, part of the project will be completed and shelled in.
