Jackson, Tennessee (July 12, 2021) – West Tennessee Healthcare, with the West Tennessee Healthcare
Foundation, recently launched a philanthropic campaign in order to build a $10 million, 20,000-square-
foot space for hospice patients. The campaign, referred to as Making Room for Love, is a call for the
community to support advanced health care in our region by establishing the region’s first residential
hospice facility that looks and feels like home.

According to James Ross, President and CEO, the facility will serve all of West Tennessee with “highly
individualized hospice care that respects the sanctity, dignity, and spiritual welfare of each patient.”
The Hospice Home will enhance end-of-life services for Jackson and surrounding communities, providing
the best clinical care for those unable to stay home. It will be designed with families in mind, allowing
them a space to share stories and celebrate lives well-lived. The home will offer 20 private, furnished
rooms with home-like comfort, and plenty of room for extended family to gather to help hospice
patients find peace and dignity.

With the community’s generous support to the Making Room for Love campaign, this dream will
become a reality and will give hospice patients the ability to receive a higher level of end-of-life care
that has not been available previously in the region.
