Yet-To-Be-Built Wake Hospice to Expand

Posted May 25, 2007 10:05 a.m. EDT

— A hospice center in Cary has not even been built yet, but there are already plans for expansion. 

Hospice of Wake County is planning a new facility for end-of-life care.

The center, which will be built near the intersection of Trinity and Trenton roads, will go from 14 to 20 beds because Rex Hospital recently received state approval to transfer its six hospice beds to the new facility.

It will be Wake County's first, stand-alone hospice facility. Construction is expected to start in the fall.
