When Willson Hospice opened In July, 2010 it immediately became the first healthcare facility in the world designated a Certified Silver Audubon International Signature Sanctuary in recognition of its extraordinary care for the 210-acre site's flora and fauna. Exterior courtyard gardens are dedicated to patients, families, volunteers and caregivers. Its 18 residential in-patient beds arranged into three pods can eventually expand into 24 beds. The layout combines spaces for the on-campus patients and their families with areas for the mobile caregivers who tend patients in the surrounding 11-county area. The building is organized to reinforce the sense of shared mission between the residential and home care staffs. The 31,000 square foot building houses the hospice program affiliated with Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital.
