Agape House Patients Temporary Relocated

August 5, 2020 | 0 Comments

Agape House patients have been temporarily relocated to Curtis Ward in the KEMH General Wing for about a month, BHB said today.

A spokesperson said, “BHB today announces that Agape House patients have been temporarily relocated to Curtis Ward in the KEMH General Wing for about a month, while work is undertaken at the Agape House facility.

“Work will include some basic maintenance and the building will be tented for fumigation nearer the end of August. During this time the service will be closed to new inpatient admissions, but Dr Debbie Benson, BHB’s Palliative Care lead physician, will continue to offer palliative care consults by referral.

Granville Russell, Director for the service, comments: “This is essential work for us to maintain services over the longer term. We apologise for any inconvenience to our patients, but the relocation is essential for the work to be completed.”

“During this time, the fax for referrals has changed to 239-2208, but emails and phone numbers for staff remain the same.”
