A Cup of Compassion Afternoon Tea Raises Over $20,000 for New Inpatient Unit.

April 25th, 2018

On Sunday, April 22, 2018, guests gathered at the Garden City Country Club in Garden City, NY to support Good Shepherd Hospice's endeavor to build a new inpatient center in Rockville Center.  It was a lovely afternoon of charm and conversation, which raised over $20,000 due to the generous support of all of the event's sponsors, donors and attendees.  All proceeds will benefit Good Shepherd Hospice's new inpatient center in Rockville Centre.

Good Shepherd Hospice's new inpatient center, currently under construction, will be located in Mercy Medical Center and is designed to be sensitive to the sacredness of end-of-life.  While state-of-the-art healthcare will be provided, it will also feature the amentities of home-including sleeping accommodations for family and a 24-hour visiting policy. Good Shepherd Hospice at Mercy Medical Center will feature family gathering spaces including a gathering lounge, chapel, quiet room and family kitchen.  There will be twelve private patient rooms with accommodations.
