The Stabler Centre
July 22, 2022

We were beyond thrilled to have the Hon. Sylvia Jones, Deputy Premier & Minister of Health and MPP Sam Oosterhoff stop by for a visit and tour at The Stabler Centre in St. Catharines.

Once again, we were able to express our gratitude for the province’s commitment to hospice palliative care in Niagara and its investment of $4M to expand Hospice Niagara. We were very pleased that Minister Jones recognized the importance of hospice palliative care and the unique experience it offers to people and families.

Today, people are living longer and with more complex conditions, and Hospice Niagara helps increase the quality of life for people diagnosed with a terminal illness, people at the end of their life, and people grieving the death of a loved one. 

Recently, the Ontario government invested $4 million to improve and expand this service. The investment supports a plan to build two new Hospice Palliative Care Centres of Excellence in Welland and Fort Erie. These will add 20 new hospice beds to the 10 that currently operate in St Catharines since 2007.

Local hospices looking to expand

The need for high quality health care has never been more obvious than in the past year. But as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect hospitals and long-term-care facilities, there’s another area of the health-care continuum that local officials are hoping to improve: end-of-life care. And it’s something that will continue long after the coronavirus currently wreaking havoc on our lives is in the past. “We believe this care is everybody’s right,” said Carol Nagy, executive director of Hospice Niagara.
