The facility covers 25,000 sq. ft. of state of the art accommodations, 16 rooms, 12 overnight suites with sleeping capacities of five people and four daytime suites. A neutropenic wing is available for children with comprised immune systems, a gourmet kitchen, indoor playroom, outdoor playground, gameroom, theater room, laundry room, resource room and a reflection room.
