The organization, formerly known as Ottawa Hospice Services, recently purchased the building, located at 110 McCurdy Dr., from Trinity Presbyterian Church to help expand its services in the west end.

“We are now expanding our services to help meet the needs of more and more people in Ottawa,” said the hospice in a news release. “Our purchase of McCurdy Drive will allow us to bring together our Kanata office and community (and) day programs. With continued successful fundraising, our hope is to build and open a new full-service 10-bed hospice by 2016.”
