Celebrating Ten Years of Hospice: More than a decade ago our community came together to support the development of the North Shore’s first free-standing hospice. The North Shore Hospice is the first free-standing Hospice for the North Shore. Owned and operated by Vancouver Coastal Health, the Hospice was built and furnished completely by the generous support of the community. Over $8.5 million was raised by Lions Gate Hospital Foundation, North Shore Hospice Society, Family Services of the North Shore and Vancouver Coastal Health to build the Hospice, located at 319 East 14th Street in North Vancouver, BC, which officially opened its doors November 1, 2010.
