Support Hospice & Participate in the New Remembrance Wall
A new Remembrance Wall will provide the Charlotte community with a special way to acknowledge and remember loved ones, while supporting a worthy cause—the expansion of Presbyterian’s Harris Hospice Unit from eight beds to 18. The Remembrance Wall, designed by artist Tom Schulz, will be comprised of over 500 tiles of varying colors from earth to sky. This unique piece of art will be approximately 16’ x 23’ and will offer everyone – even those not touched by hospice – a way to honor or remember someone dear.

Patients and their loved ones can be together in an area where the emphasis is on stabilizing symptoms while providing comfort and support.
For many families, the Harris Hospice Unit becomes a home away from home. Located within Presbyterian Medical Center, patients and their families can be together in an area where the emphasis is on comfort and support.
This transitional unit has a specialized team that emphasizes stabilizing symptoms while providing comfort and support – all with the goal of returning patients back to their home for continuation of care. Our Harris Hospice Unit’s coordinated team approach to care helps families learn to provide the

at home while still having the guidance and support of hospital staff.
Our goal is to meet the needs of both the patient and the family by offering a coordinated team approach to care. This approach helps families learn to provide the necessary hospice care at home while still having the guidance and support of our staff in the hospital. The hospice team also will assist the family in coordinating plans for returning the patient home after symptoms are under control.
