LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Seriously ill patients have a new place to turn to in New Albany.  The ribbon was cut Thursday morning on the new home of Hosparus Southern Indiana.

The agency recently moved into the facility on the Leo and Catherine Koerber campus.  The building has more space for offices, group meetings, and patient and family needs.

Jerry Leonard of Hosparus Southern Indiana explains, "It's a different type of illness and it's usually terminal, but the families are suffering as well.  What Hosparus can offer more of is not only care for the patients and the families through our doctors and our nurses and our aides, but we also offer psycho-social help as well as our counseling so that afterwards the families can process through that."

There's also space for child, family, and adult bereavement services, and the pediatric hospice program.
