Ontario contributes to Hamilton children’s hospice

HAMILTON,ONT. — The Ontario government has announced it is spending $2.5 million towards construction of the Kemp Care Network’s new 10-bed children’s hospice in Hamilton.

Keaton’s House – Paul Paletta Children’s Hospice will offer palliative care for children and youth living with progressive life-limiting illnesses. The facility will offer 10 bedrooms for children where family members can stay with their child; play, activity and gathering areas inside and out; and space for day wellness programs and therapies such as massage, movement, recreation and music.

Other health and support services will include residential care, including pediatric end-of-life nursing and personal support, and grief and bereavement support.

Partners on the projects are Kemp Care Network and McMaster Children’s Hospital.

Once the beds open, the Ontario government will invest $2.25 million in annual operational funding for Keaton’s House – Paul Paletta Children’s Hospice. The hospice is expected to open in 2026.
