California: L.A.'s First AIDS Hospice Returned to City in Memorial Service

January 29, 2013

On January 26, The Chris Brownlie Hospice, once used as Los Angeles's first hospice for AIDS patients, was returned to the city. The AIDS Healthcare Foundation has been using the hospice building for offices since 1996. A memorial service was held to celebrate and honor the service the hospice provided from 1988 to 1996 as a nursing home for those dying from diseases caused by HIV. The Los Angeles Gay Men's Chorus performed in memory of the hundreds who died there, including 140 chorus members. Participants ended the celebration by releasing seven balloons at sunset, one for each year the hospice operated.
