John B. and Elizabeth V. Wight Inpatient Hospice Center

For most people, hospice care has only been provided in an outpatient setting: at home, in an assisted living facility or even in the hospital. For many years, Archbold has recognized the community’s desire to have an inpatient hospice program available to those families who need a special level of care and assistance, but do not wish to be in the sterile and clinical environment of a hospital, or lack the resources to have full time care at home.

Thanks to the generous support of so many community donors, Archbold’s longtime dream of an inpatient hospice facility is coming true! The John B. and Elizabeth V. Wight Inpatient Hospice Center will be a true blessing for Thomasville and the surrounding communities we serve.

Thus far we have raised over $5 million in support of the campaign and our plans are to begin work on the repurposed 4th floor of Archbold’s West Wing in 2019. Once completed, the new facility will offer a critical inpatient option for end of life care to our community.

On behalf of everyone at Archbold, we invite you to explore the option of giving back to such a wonderful cause. Your gift will make a differnce in the lives of your friends and family members for years to come. There are many ways that you can participate in the campaign as a donor. From named gift opportunities to tribute donations in memory or in honor of a loved one. All gifts and pledges of $1,000 or more will be permanently recognized with a plaque on the Donor Wall that will be located in the main lobby of the center.
