SC VA Columbia opens hospice care center extension

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The Dorn Veterans Administration Medical Center in Columbia is scheduled to open a new section of its hospice center.

VA spokesman Kevin McIver says Friday morning's ribbon cutting ceremony is meant to offer a look at the expanded location that provides a special location for veteran's end-of-life care.

The expansion area is dubbed a "Warriors' Walk," where doctors, nurses and health care professionals provide palliative care that seeks to ease patients' pain as they enter the final stage of life.

McIver says the medical center provides health care for some 70,000 veterans with its Columbia center and its seven outpatient clinics.
