Governance and Mission
The Aroostook Hospice Foundation, Inc., incorporated in the State of Maine, is a 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization. The Foundation is directed by a board of directors comprised of health care professionals, hospice volunteers, business managers and prominent representatives of the community (see Appendix 1).
The mission of the Foundation is the construction of a four to six bed hospice residential facility which will provide twenty four hour a day palliative care. The facility will have the capacity to provide approximately 1,460 to 2,190 patient days of hospice care annually. Assuming an average stay of 35 days, the facility would have the resources to accommodate 42 to 63 patients per annum at 100 percent of capacity.
