'Place between heaven and earth:' Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland delivers flower ministry - Clarion Ledger
In 1992, with the help of the Willing Hearts Circle of the Kings Daughter Medical Center, Hospice of Central Mississippi opened another center in Brookhaven.
In 1997, Hospice of Central Mississippi and Whispering Pines Hospice of South Jackson merged and Hospice Ministries resulted.
The Rev. Don Fortenberry recalled that Whispering Pines Hospice initially served patients with HIV/AIDS but, as medical treatment improved for HIV/AIDS patients, it enlarged its focus to include patients facing the end of life. The Catholic Diocese of Mississippi, the Episcopal Diocese of Mississippi and the Methodist Conference of Mississippi established Whispering Pines.
A June 14, 1999 photo Clarion Ledger photo shows Bishop William Houck of the Catholic Diocese of Jackson, with the Rev. Jerry McBride of St. James Episcopal Church and the Fortenberry of the Mississippi Area of the United Methodist Conference by his side, sprinkling blessed water during the dedication of the Ridgeland facility.
“Hospice Ministries has developed a reputation for quality, compassionate care of people at the end of life,” said Fortenberry, who served on the board at Whispering Pines Hospice and chaired the Hospice Ministries Board for several years. “People who go to work there and stay for many years see it as a ministry. That makes all the difference in how they help people deal with impending death.”
In addition to care at its facility in Ridgeland, Hospice Ministries also offers in-home hospice care as well as hospice care for patients in nursing homes, assisted living homes and other residential care settings. The McLean Fletcher Center at 12 Northtown Drive in Jackson provides programs for grieving children and teens and also falls under the umbrella of Hospice Ministries.
The in-patient facility of Hospice Ministries in Ridgeland has room to care for 40 patients and that care extends to emotional support for their families. Care is focused on the patient’s priorities, needs and values, and services are designed to ease pain and alleviate symptoms.
“Thirty years ago, hospice was something new,” said Houston. “More people understand it but it’s still new to some people.”
Hospice Ministries accepts private insurance and Medicare and uses Medicare guidelines for admitting patients. “A patient has to have a life-limiting illness with a life expectancy of six months or less,” Britt said.
The in-patient facility in Ridgeland includes a chapel with windows designed by Andy Young of Pearl River Glass Studio in Jackson. The chapel was named in honor of Fortenberry after he completed his service on the board.
“The chapel represents the religious base of the facility as does the name,” Fortenberry said. “It’s a very pretty setting that can be used for memorial services.”
Community organizations have assisted with updates to the facility, Britt said.

Decatur nonprofit's flower kits help bring science to life for GA students
So far, 112 kits have gone out, with 89 of those to students at Alpharetta Elementary School and others to parents in Brookhaven and Roswell.The nonprofit is the idea of Decatur resident and Emory student, Gabriela Kova. Kova, who is in her third year studying political science, said she was inspired by working with children and seeing the “ah-ha!” moments when a challenging concept became clear.“[These kits] allow kids to examine colors, shapes and sizes and put it all together to draw their own conclusions in an all encompassing way,” she said. “I love seeing when these kids finally get a concept, and I want more kids to have those moments.”Using the kits teaches observation skills that form the building blocks of the scientific process, Kova said.Each kit comes in a decorative paper mache box and includes a handmade wooden flower press, nature journal, child-safe scissors, a pencil and custom fit paper towels moisture from flowers.
