Mishawaka Center for Hospice Care

Mishawaka, Indiana

In 2010, JPR was retained by the Hospice Board of Directors to assist with site evaluation and selection as the Board considered their next hospice care facility.

Ultimately, a brownfield site within the City of Mishawaka’s riverfront redevelopment area was selected. The site came with multiple challenges including questionable sub-surface conditions, high-water tables, conflicts with utilities, and the need to demolish some dilapidated structures before site planning could commence.

JPR resolved all constraints and helped the Hospice Board develop a multiphase campus Master Plan that included five buildings (65,000 square feet), plus a guest house for patient families. The site includes a riverwalk, therapeutic garden, new street improvements, a war memorial, and associated parking fields. The landscape design incorporates outdoor patient areas, a courtyard, walking paths, and carefully planned plantings and lighting.

As the second project with hospice, JPR is especially proud of the Master Plan and our continued partnership
