We are grateful to Mr. Michael Fux for sharing our vision of creating a special place where families can enjoy activities, find relaxation, refresh themselves and perhaps even forget for a little while that they are in a hospital. The center is a tribute to Mr. Fux and to the thousands of families who entrust their children to our care each year. It’s a part of our commitment to support and empower those we serve.

  • We ask all inpatients to obtain a medical clearance card from their nurse prior to visiting the center.
