Rowans Hospice has been caring for people with life-limiting illnesses in Portsmouth and South East Hampshire for nearly 25 years. Thanks to the amazing support of our local community, we have been able to grow our services to meet the needs of patients and families in our area.
In 2017, the care we provided was rated as Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission and this is something that we are very proud of; however the hospice building is now showing signs of age, particularly when contrasted with our Living Well Centre which opened in 2016. New technologies are also now available which can be incorporated into the in-patient bedrooms to enhance the patient experience by increasing their independence and self-control.
Hospice care is so much more than a building, however the building remains fundamental in the delivery of care as it is the home of our professional teams, in-patient ward and therapy areas for patients, relatives, carers and the bereaved.
Our ambitious Silver Jubilee Appeal will create a hospice that continues to offer a place of tranquillity and sanctuary, and will allow our care to continue and progress for the next 25 years. To achieve our ambitions, we need the support of our community and people just like you.
