Project Description

Community Hospice, Inc: Stanislaus County

$5,500,000 tax -exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit bonds for the acquisition of land, building, and equipment.

Since its founding in the mid-1980’s, the mission of Community Hospice, Inc. (CHI) is to provide compassionate and quality care, education and support to terminally ill patients and their families, regardless of ability to pay. CHI operates a 16-bed Hospice House and provides daily in-home hospice care to 180 patients. Hospice House was the first hospice house in California to receive Medicare accreditation for an acute level of inpatient hospice care. CHI’s operations were previously housed in several locations throughout the area. In 2006, CHI consolidated all its clinical, bereavement and administrative employees in a 22,200 square foot office building in Modesto. CHI can now offer seven interdisciplinary teams to provide in-home medical, counseling, equipment, and grief counseling. The financing enabled Community Hospice, Inc. to consolidate operations into a single location and eliminate variable rental occupancy costs, leading to cost savings, increased operational efficiencies, and enhanced patient services.
