VPCS oversaw construction of the first freestanding children’s hospice and respite care facility in the United States. It now operates as a fully functional, OSHPD-approved medical facility that also provides terminally ill children with a comfortable environment. The 15,000-square-foot facility includes both private and family suites; communal and private gardens; a great room and family-style dining areas; music, art, speech, occupational and physical therapy areas; and companion pet programs. In addition to the main facility, a separate building contains an all-faith sanctuary.
The project’s founder, Dr. Kathleen Hull, speaks poignantly of the impact and importance of George Mark Children’s House in the TED talk viewable below. Click here to support George Mark Children’s House.
