Hospice of the Sacred Heart is relocating its Wilkes-Barre administrative office and Moosic Center for Education to a large, very modern and technology-ready space with offices and multi-purpose rooms at 53 Glenmaura National Boulevard, Moosic. The new space is on the first floor of the Cigna Building high atop Montage Mountain.
Hospice of the Sacred Heart opened in 2003 and was located at 130 Wilkes-Barre Bvld., Wilkes-Barre. Unprecedented growth occurred shortly afterwards and the agency moved to 600 Baltimore Drive, Wilkes-Barre, in 2007. Hospice of the Sacred Heart also operates a 10-bed inpatient unit at 100 William St., Dunmore.
The relocation follows a decision to transition to a hybrid workplace for most administrative employees. Clinical, social, pastoral and bereavement services are not affected by the relocation.
“The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic requires that we work differently and apart as much as possible. Most administrative employees will perform a majority of their daily duties remotely,” said Diane Baldi, Chief Executive Officer, Hospice of the Sacred Heart.
The new location will have work stations, meeting rooms and multi-purpose rooms for work and activities that cannot be performed remotely. “The future of work is hybrid. I believe many healthcare organizations will adopt our new work plan in some form,” Baldi said.
The mission of Hospice of the Sacred Heart is to provide comfort, care, hope and choice to patients and their families, while guiding them through the end of life journey.
