Thunderbird Palliative Care Unit
Hospice of the Valley opened its new Thunderbird Palliative Care Unit in February 2013. The 10,500-square-foot facility can accommodate up to 16 patients and is conveniently located near Thunderbird Medical Center. Landscaped with water features and attractive landscaping, the building includes a large family room with a fireplace, spacious common area patios, and a quiet room. Patient rooms each have French doors that open onto private patios.
The PCU was constructed on the site of a former plant nursery that had fallen into disrepair. The infill project drew support from the city of Glendale for the agency's efforts to improve the property.
