Imagine walking into a hospital and being able to spend the time in between doctor’s visits giggling in an indoor playroom under butterfly sculptures and lights shaped like clouds. Or creating a masterpiece in an art studio. Imagine spending time after appointments in a science lab full of microscopes and beakers for testing, experimenting and exploring.
This vision is becoming reality for patients at St. Jude, with the debut of the new 45,000-square-foot Family Commons on the second floor of the St. Jude Patient Care Center. This haven offers families much-needed respite in between appointments, thanks to a generous donation from AbbVie, the largest single corporate gift in the history of St. Jude.
