Monroe County hospice house re-opening


SMITHFIELD TOWNSHIP, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — It’s official. Monroe County’s hospice house in Smithfield Township is re-opening.

A ribbon-cutting will be held this Wednesday at 1 p.m. with an open house  the following night beginning at 5 p.m.

Lehigh Valley Health Network closed the facility more than a year ago, but community members fought to have it re-opened. They formed a special committee and worked with hospital leaders to make sure the facility was financially fit to resume end-of-life care.
