Morrison House Anniversary Celebration

ZANESVILLE, OH (Jan. 16, 2017)Morrison House is celebrating 30 years of providing compassionate inpatient hospice care. An open house will be held for the community Tuesday, Jan. 24, from 5:30 to 7 p.m. to tour the upgraded facility.

Morrison House opened in 1987 to provide hospice care for families and friends in the region, and through this time has cared for more than 10,000 patients. Hospice offers a caring and nurturing environment for those with a serious illness. The facility has been modernized and features a renovated family room, updated homelike patient rooms, a new nurses’ station and a private bereavement center.

“Our family and friends in Southeastern Ohio appreciate the care Morrison House provides. The renovations cost $700,000 and were made possible through generous donations from the community,” said Paul McClelland, director, Genesis HealthCare Foundation.
