Gift of Time: A New Acute Care Hospice Facility

Give the gift of time ... time for patients and their families facing the end of life to be together and live each final day to its fullest potential, surrounded in love, compassion and comfort. 

These are the goals of the Gift of Time campaign, an effort to raise $15 million to bring a new in-patient, acute-level hospice facility to the Sioux Falls region.

We’re so close, but urgently need your support. Give today.

About Ava's House by Sanford

Ava's House

The facility, to be named Ava’s House by Sanford, will provide 24-hour nursing care in a home-like environment. It will ensure that patients have a comforting place to turn when symptoms and pain are beyond the scope of care currently provided at the Sanford Hospice Cottages or delivered in the hospital, long-term care facilities or in-home settings.

 Honoring its namesake, Ava Holder, who passed away at 4 years old after a courageous battle against cancer, Ava’s House will also offer one of only four in-patient pediatric hospice programs in the country.
