Themes have been selected for our new project at St. Mary’s in Richmond! This is a large project with four main rooms that pediatric patients will utilize everyday, and we wanted to be sure that each room was unique but also keeps a centralized theme.

Keeping that in mind we have selected an overall nature theme for the entire space, and then each room will depict a different scene found in nature.

  • Group Room one will be a Hiking/Mountain theme, and include tree chairs, a 12ft mountain felt wall, a 9ft LED Corian wall, and light green and tan colors throughout.

  • Group Room two will be an Underwater theme with light blue and navy chairs, a 6ft backlit Whale art feature, three video screens depicting an underwater aquarium, and then light blue colors throughout.

  • Education Space will be River theme with a granite counter mimicking a river bed, blue chairs, a 22ft Mural, and a 6ft wide felt wall art feature to help with sound.

  • Sensory Room will be camping under the stars theme with LED star ceiling panels, a plush been bag chair, and numerous sensory activities.

The photos shown here are some of the furniture pieces, and wall décor we have selected already. It’s going to be exciting to see it all come together.

As many of you are aware we have been delayed with our Pediatric Infusion Project at St. Mary's in Richmond. The situation has been out of our control due to Covid, construction delays, and hospital administration changes. In the meantime, we have been looking for other projects in the area, and we are excited to announce that we have found one!

We are thrilled to reveal that we are designing a brand new seven room Pediatric Partial Hospital Program (PHP) Suite at St. Mary's Hospital in Richmond. The PHP program is a structured, intensive outpatient treatment program for children up to age 18 who need a higher level of care for a serious mental health condition. While this is different than our Pediatric Infusion Center mission, we do feel that pediatric mental health is very important. These kids will be spending the school day at this facility, and if the Praespero Group can to do anything to make their stay more enjoyable we wanted to help.

Keeping that in mind we are designing each group room with a particular theme, as well as making it comfortable and pleasant for the kids and doctors who will be there. We will be sharing our designs and updates with you throughout this process, and we can't wait for you to see everything!

The center is slated to open in January 2024, and we are aiming to have an open house for all our supporters in November.

Thank you all for your support and patience, and stay tuned for updates each month!

Project Inspiration

The children at St. Mary's Pediatric Infusion Center in Richmond, Virginia gave us some great ideas for our vehicle project.  We asked them to draw us any type of vehicle they wanted to have in their infusion center with all the amenities they wanted and they did not disappoint.  Take a look below at all their creativity!
