Baptist Memorial Health Care has opened its second Grief Center location, the Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief, Milla's House, on the grounds of Idlewild Presbyterian Church on Union Ave. in Midtown.
It is named in memory of Milla Gieselmann, the 6-year-old daughter of Memphis couple Frazer and Dana Gieselmann. In November 2016, Milla died from Batten disease, an inherited neurodegenerative disorder for which there is no cure. Milla's House is in Idlewild's newly opened Children and Family Enrichment Center.
Baptist's original Grief Center, the Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief, opened in 2005 and relocated in 2010 to be next to the Baptist Reynolds Hospice House, at Baptist Collierville. A third Grief Center will open in October in Jonesboro, Arkansas.
Since the advent of Camp Good Grief, Baptist has added additional camps for teens and adults and provided free grief counseling, seminars and workshops to almost 4,000 individuals in 2016.
