April 5, 2023 – Atalanta Hospice Society (AHS) announced two significant donations for the proposed Fundy Hospice at its Annual General Meeting on April 4.

AHS President David Cvet said the Digby and Area Health Service Charitable Foundation has made a commitment of $25,000 to the capital construction of the Fundy Hospice once the construction of the facility has commenced.

He said AHS has received a similar commitment of $15,000 from the Rotary Club of Middleton.

Fundy Hospice is a proposed new residential-style hospice to serve the residents of Annapolis and Digby municipalities. The Atalanta Hospice Society is the registered not-for-profit organization in Nova Scotia raising funds for construction of the hospice.

“We deeply appreciate the financial support of the Digby and Area Health Service

Charitable Foundation and The Rotary Club of Middleton as we continue to raise the funds necessary to construct Fundy Hospice for the betterment of our local communities,” said David Cvet, President of AHS. “Having the support of these organizations, which are so influential in their respective communities, should send the signal to important stakeholders in the region that this hospice project is moving forward and gaining momentum.”

As currently proposed, the Fundy Hospice will be located on 6.63 acres in Cornwallis Park on property donated by the Annapolis Basin Conference Centre. The Cornwallis Park site is a central location that will keep the commute by most patient families to within 30 minutes from most communities in the two counties. Fundy Hospice will be the only residential-style hospice located in Southwest Nova Scotia when it goes into operation.

“The Foundation is pleased to support your efforts in bringing this state of the art and much needed facility to the area,” said Beth Earle, Chair, Digby and Area Health Service Charitable Foundation.  “We thank you for the foresight and dedication to such a large project.”

“The Rotary Club of Middleton is pleased to be one of the organizations to offer support for the Fundy Hospice,” said David Ross, President of Rotary Club of Middleton. “The development of the Hospice is an important and necessary project for the Annapolis and Digby communities and we are honoured  to be able to support this initiative.”
