The Anita M. Turner Center

282 Sells Road in Lancaster, Ohio

Creating a safe, nurturing place for healing.

In addition to providing traditional hospice care, FAIRHOPE Hospice & Palliative Care, also serves as a valuable resource to the community for grief care. To respond to the increasing demand for their grief care services, FAIRHOPE decided to build a free-standing community grief center. Here they are able to house family grief camps in a non-healthcare, family-oriented setting multiple times throughout the year. The grief center also houses administrative offices and meeting space that is available for civic, non-profit and community organizations to utilize.

FAIRHOPE contracted with Gorsuch Construction, Inc. in February of 2016 to design and build the 7,000 square foot Anita M. Turner Grief Center, which took approximately 12 months to complete.

“We’re a non-profit focused on caring for patients and their loved ones, so when it came time to build a new building we needed a trusted partner to help us through the process while understanding our vision and budget. We were fortunate to work with Gorsuch Construction to create The Anita M. Turner Center. Gorsuch Construction listened to our ideas and developed an amazing building that will be used to help people of all ages in our community through their grief journey. They are a true local treasure.” Denise Bauer, FAIRHOPE Hospice and Palliative Care President/CEO.
