A Message from the Campaign Chair
Sundale is our community’s choice for rehabilitation and long term care. Since 1958, we have embraced each resident with comfort, security and 24-hour access to medical attention.
However, there is an increasing need in our community for palliative care . . . an alternative course of treatment when curative medicine is longer an option. Our palliative care team focuses on providing comfort, support and quality of life for our residents who have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. We also strive to meet the emotional needs of family members through gentle understanding and compassion.
While a significant part of Sundale’s residents currently receive these services, the board of directors
believes Sundale needs a dedicated palliative care unit. In providing this vital, yet final piece of our continuum of care, we are Fulfilling The Promise for our loved ones and their families.
In 2008, Sundale’s board of directors authorized a capital campaign to fund the construction and equipping of a very special wing to be added to Sundale: The Palliative Care Center, fifteen private rooms in a homelike setting. With this new wing, Sundale will continue to partner with area Hospice organizations to provide continuity in medical treatment during the final stages of life as well as bereavement counseling.
We invite you to become part of The Palliative Care Center at Sundale Fulfilling the Promise Capital Campaign.
There is a critical need for end-of-life care in our community. The vision and plans will become a reality. If you would like to take part in this very important expansion, please contact us at (304) 599-0497 or donate online at
Help us in Fulfilling the Promise.

Fulfilling the Promise Capital Campaign
The total cost to realize Sundale’s vision for The Palliative Care Center is $2.5 million. The initial construction costs are funded by public bonds issued by the Monongalia County Building Commission. With increasing pressures on federal (Medicare) and state (Medicaid) budget expenditures, the goal of Fulfilling the Promise Capital Campaign is to raise the full project cost of $2.5 million in private funds from individuals, foundations, corporations and organizations.
