Maison McCulloch Hospice (MMH) is a Centre of excellence dedicated to the collaborative delivery of quality hospice palliative care, in both official languages, in the city of Greater Sudbury and the District of Sudbury. The Hospice helps individuals and their families realize their full potential to live even when they are dying, by attending to their physical, psychosocial, spiritual, and practical needs, in the location of their choice. Maison McCulloch Hospice is a two-level, free standing, 26,000 square feet building which, having undergone a recent expansion, provides 20 rooms with beds and individual bathrooms for residents that would benefit from a palliative approach to care. The Hospice is situated on a two-acre site at the St. Joseph’s Health Centre (SJHC) Village of Care on South Bay Road in Sudbury.
The organization provides an integrated model of palliative care to its residents through a team-based approach to care delivery that includes physicians, nurses, personal support workers, a coordinator of supportive care, and volunteers. It brings family members, friends and healthcare professionals together as a caregiving team so residents can live their remaining days in dignity and comfort, surrounded by loved ones.
The Hospice also operates a Shared Care Team which supports the delivery of palliative care to individuals in the community. In addition, the Hospice manages a Volunteer Visiting Program, with dedicated volunteers supporting the daily operation of the residential facility.
The Executive Director is responsible for the successful management of MMH in accordance with identified strategic directions, mission, vision, and core values. Reporting to the Board of Directors, major areas of accountability include: Operational and Program Planning and Management; Human Resources; Financial Oversight; Community and Political Relations; Quality; Safety and Risk Management. The Executive Director will also be comfortable working closely with the Foundation Board on fundraising initiatives.
