OUR STORY

THE BUILDING OF MARIPOSA

Mariposa House Hospice incorporated in 2016.  Three years and $3.5 million dollars later, we broke ground on Aug 29, 2019  to begin building a 5-bed residential hospice dedicated to serving the residents of Orillia, Severn, Oro-Medonte, Ramara, and Chippewas of Rama First Nation. 

We will offer several comforts and amenities on a beautiful 2.4 acre lot in Severn Township, surrounded by nature. Our building is in an ideal location with room to grow.

Mariposa House Hospice has proudly partnered with Cool Earth architects, specializing in low carbon structures, Van Horne Construction, and the project management team at Ingersoll and Associates to bring this residential hospice to fruition.

We are grateful for capital contributions from Ontario’s Ministry of Health and the County of Simcoe, our surrounding municipalities and townships, and many individuals, families and businesses from our community.
