Often out of sight and out of mind for individuals in Bulloch and the eight other counties it serves - until needed - the Ogeechee Area Hospice has quietly and steadfastly served people and families experiencing end-of-life issues for more than 16 years. Tuesday, the not-for-profit hospice announced the kick-off of a $1.2 million fundraising campaign to expand its facility, more than doubling in-patient care capabilities by becoming just the second hospice in Georgia with residential care units. The proposed development, projected to cost approximately $1.6 million, will renovate the hospice's current building - located on East Grady Street where the old Bulloch Memorial Hospital once sat - and expand facilities by more than 18,000 square feet.
