Marie Curie Hospice in Penarth reopens its doors today following a £1.7m refurbishment.
The hospice, which was built 25 years ago, supports people with terminal cancer and other illnesses, along with their families.
The money has been used to improve and modernise patient and family facilities.
The improvements include:
- Additional single-occupancy rooms
- New en-suite facilities for the hospice’s multi-bed wards
- Refurbished visitor areas
- Modernised reception area
The hospice provides support to around 1,200 cancer patients in Wales each year.
One of them is 28-year-old Michael Davies, a police officer from St Mellons.
As part of the improvements, the hospice - formerly known as Marie Curie Hospice, Penarth - has been re-named Marie Curie Hospice, Cardiff and the Vale.
It will be officially reopened by Lesley Griffiths AM, Minister for Health and Social Services.
