The north coast’s only specialized end of life care facility, the Ida Emmerson Hospice House, opened in October of 2016. “The vision and development of this project have been in the works for six years and it would never have been possible without the tremendous community support we have received,” says Joe Rogers, the chief executive officer of Hospice of Humboldt.
“I hope the community will come see this special place built to serve patients and families at end of life. I believe it’s a gift to the community, an extension of our mission and will provide access to quality care to more local residents,” says Rogers.
