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!
