Campbell House, the region’s first dedicated hospice-palliative-care-facility, opened its doors 10 years ago in August. This marked an incredible milestone for Hospice Georgian Triangle. 

Although Hospice Georgian Triangle has been in existence since 1987, Campbell House was finally a place to call home for compassionate end-of-life care. 

In August 2014, Campbell House opened, thanks to the generosity of the Audrey and Donald Campbell Foundation. Donald was a “proud Canadian” who served in WWII as a RCAF pilot. His successful business career culminated as Chairman of Maclean Hunter Ltd., a major Canadian communications company. Audrey and Donald were high-school sweethearts who raised a family of five boys. In Collingwood, they skied, played tennis and bridge, and golfed. They began the Audrey and Donald Campbell Foundation making many impressive charitable donations. The Campbell family’s support inspired many others in years to come. 

Driving the project was a small group of dedicated individuals who fundraised, volunteered and advocated for Campbell House, stopping at nothing until the facility with six family suites was opened, and after expanding to 10 family suites. 

Today, Campbell House serves over 250 patients and their families each year. In addition, grief and bereavement counselling is provided to thousands of individuals in the community by a dedicated team of staff, supported by volunteers. 

Stepping through the doors, people are warmly greeted and immediately feel welcomed into the compassionate and home-like environment. 

Outside of patient rooms are stunning gardens adorned by birdsong and beautiful walkways. Patient suites offer a serene and homelike setting, providing comfort to patients and families during their final days together. 

We are incredibly grateful for the people who have come together to build and grow Campbell House. To our staff, volunteers and the donors who made this incredible place a final home, thank you. 

Congratulations on 10 years. You should be very proud.

“I have always had a passion for helping patients and their families through their hospice palliative care journey. I consider it a great privilege to be the Medical Director of Hospice Georgian Triangle. I want to wish the team a big congratulations on 10 years of Campbell House. We have grown in ways that seem larger than possible. We have overcome obstacles we never knew would come our way. We have become a family that helps other families. I am very proud to be part of this.”

Executive Director, Trish Rawn, joined Hospice Georgian Triangle in July, 2019. Less than a year later, the world shut down due to the global pandemic. 

“Providing exceptional hospice care during the pandemic was a huge challenge,” says Trish. “We are used to giving hugs and comfort and the pandemic put up so many barriers. Everything changed in an instant. The resilience of the Hospice clinical and administrative staff and their ability to go above and beyond, is something I will never forget.” 

Overnight the organization had to  operate without more than 100 volunteers, scramble to get PPE and vaccinations, and regularly change policies to protect patients, families and staff. 

At the same time, Hospice Georgian Triangle received government funding to open four additional beds at Campbell House for patients in need of pain and symptom management, or to support respite for primary caregivers. 

“It was an exceptionally difficult time.There were increased staff shortages due to quarantine measures, exacerbated by the absence of volunteers and visiting restrictions for relatives,” says Rawn. “And despite that, we opened four beds and increased the number of people we could help.” 

Thanks to the leadership of Hospice Georgian Triangle, compassionate hospice palliative care continued despite COVID-19 and patients were provided with a high-quality end-of-life. 

Thank you all that have served on the Hospice Georgian Triangle Board and Hospice Georgian Triangle Foundation Board supporting care at Campbell House and in the community.
