Hospice residence renamed High Pointe House


Lawrence, MA – Merrimack Valley Hospice House, located at 360 North Avenue in Haverhill, MA, has been renamed High Pointe House, the hospice and palliative care residence of Merrimack Valley Hospice.

“We are so honored to have recently received a very generous, anonymous pledge of support that allows the donor to be recognized by naming the hospice House,” said Karen Gomes, RN, MS, CPHQ, President and CEO of Home Health Foundation which includes Merrimack Valley Hospice, Home Health VNA and HomeCare, Inc.  “This wonderful gesture supports patients and families in need of comprehensive end-of-life care and builds on our unwavering commitment to compassion and dignity for patients and families throughout the communities we serve.”

The newly named High Pointe House, which opened in June 2009, contains 21 private suites as well as libraries, indoor and outdoor dining areas, family gathering areas and beautiful walkways and gardens.   Since opening, the House has provided comprehensive end-of-life care to more than 4,000 patients, and grief and bereavement support to families and loved ones.

“The name High Pointe House reflects our beautiful and peaceful setting and is meaningful to the donor, a proud and private local family,” said Donna Deveau, Vice President of External Relations for Home Health Foundation. “The name helps build upon our legacy of caring and compassion, and represents the ability of patients and families to experience respect and dignity with reminders of life’s celebrations during their individual journeys.”
