Hospice Halifax announced its eligibility criteria and process for admission on February 12, 2019. Information on referring Nova Scotian patients to our 10-bed hospice residence is now public and accessible through our website, www.hospicehalifax.ca

Given that the hospice residence will open in late April, due to a change in the construction schedule, we will post a new date soon for Hospice Halifax to accept requests for assessment from patients’ most responsible healthcare professional. Please continue to visit this web page for updates.
