Stansell House Celebrated

The completion and opening of the Macky & Pam Stansell House are achievements fueled by the commitment of countless supporters and organizations. Together we raised more than $6.8 million, renovated a building, hired and trained a professional and caring staff, and swung open the doors, ready to deliver on our mission to serve those who are no longer safe at home and need residential hospice at the end of life.

It’s my honor to report back to the community that this mission has been implemented.

Immediately after opening, Stansell House received its first patient. Since then, we have continued to receive patients on a regular basis, and we are both humbled and honored to be able to now care for our community in this way.

Stansell House is the only and first ever residential hospice house on the Lower Eastern Shore, and it closes a gap that existed between home-based hospice care and the high complexity inpatient care we offer at Coastal Hospice at the Lake.

A physician I know once stated that the only condition that has a 100% mortality rate is life itself. Every one of us will face this challenging time at some point in our lives, and as an organization we stand ready to be by your side.

Thank you to everyone who embraced this vision. Your support has brought, and will continue to bring, dignity to those who need this care the most.
