Hospice House Campaign
New Woodside Hospice House opens doors to expand care for families
In October 2018, following months of renovations, we opened the doors to Mission House — a peaceful, homelike place for patients in the last weeks of life who need intensive, round-the-clock symptom management that cannot be provided at home.
We also launched a $4 million capital campaign to support the opening of the house, including the purchase of the home, start-up costs, and care for patients who are underinsured or cannot afford to stay at the house.
Thanks to generous lead gifts from the Sequoia Healthcare District and Stanford Health Care, we have raised $3.7 million toward our goal. Our Campaign Co-Chairs Dr. Stephen Weller and Mary Chigos are working with others to identify additional major gifts.
The six-bedroom home is conveniently located in Redwood City’s Woodside Plaza neighborhood, near Woodside Road and Highway 280. The hospice house greatly enhances our capacity to care for the San Mateo County and northern Santa Clara County community, allowing us to serve patients whose end-of-life comfort cannot be managed at home.
We are asking everyone in the community to join us in supporting our Woodside Hospice House Campaign. Together, we can raise the remaining $300,000 necessary to give patients the gift of compassionate end-of-life care at Mission House – and support for the entire family.
