Hospice of the Western Reserve to Relocate West Side Team
Late last year, Hospice of the Western Reserve was notified that the building in which it has been occupying an office in Lakewood was slated for demolition. After scouting multiple locations, the nonprofit agency has signed a lease and will be relocating its staff to a new office located at 22730 Fairview Center Drive, Fairview Park, early this summer. Multiple factors were involved in the site selection process.
“Through the years, Hospice of the Western Reserve has developed many valued business and community partnerships in Lakewood, Fairview Park and the surrounding communities,” said Lisa Tomm, community facility coordinator. We intend to remain as active as ever in partnering with local business and community leaders in all of the communities we serve from our new home base in Fairview Park.” Tomm added that operations are expected to be seamless, with no interruptions in service in any of the West Side communities the agency serves.
The staff and volunteers involved in the move travel to provide care to patients in their personal residences, at nursing facilities and assisted living and retirement communities. The office site serves as a central base of operations for the team; no patient care is provided there. Positions on the care teams include doctors, nurses, hospice nursing assistants, social workers, and bereavement counselors, among others.
The office is one of many the nonprofit agency utilizes as an operational base. Hospice of the Western Reserve has offices in multiple sites throughout Northern Ohio. Its headquarters is located at 17876 St. Clair Ave. in Cleveland.
