Huntsville Hospital, Hospice Family Care in partnership

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Officials at Huntsville Hospital and Hospice Family Care have created a partnership that will create the area's first in-patient hospice facility.

The program is geared toward taking care of terminally ill patients and their families.

"I think it's a really good deal," said Huntsville Hospital CEO David Spillers.

"What's right for the patients, what's right for the families, what's right for the community and what's right for the valley," said Tony Palumbo, board president of Hospice Family Care

The new facility will be the fourth in the state;  the others are in Tuscaloosa, Auburn and Albertville.
