AMITA Health Alexian Brothers Hospice Residence

Eckenhoff Saunders worked with Alexian Brothers on the design and construction of a new free-standing 16-bed facility for hospice care. The single-story structure incorporates areas for families and staff including a small chapel for services and reflection. Each room has abundant natural light, privacy and provisions for family members to spend the night. Exterior spaces include walking paths, gardens and sitting areas amid a large site of lawn and mature trees.
