St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to build $110m patient housing facility

WCN Editorial Team 15 Sep 2020 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has announced that it will build a new $110m housing facility, dubbed The Domino’s Village, for patients and their families in Memphis, Tennessee.

To be located at 361 N. Third Street, the new six-storey, 288,998ft² facility will include an underground parking garage, an outside courtyard/play area and a planned pedestrian bridge across North Third Street to the St. Jude campus.

It will also include 140 units for both short-term and long-term stays, including one-bedroom suites and two- and three-bedroom apartments.

Designed by the Renaissance Group, the facility will feature amenities and customised activity spaces for families and children of various ages.

St. Jude president and CEO James Downing said: “A diagnosis of paediatric cancer or other life-threatening diseases affects the entire family, and treatments can take months or even years.

“We asked patients and their families to tell us what would make their experience the best possible while staying at St. Jude. Their thoughts and ideas are reflected in the planning and design of this new residence.”

Domino’s has announced that it is committing to provide $100m for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during the next 10 years to finance the patient housing facility.

Linkois Construction has been selected by St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to deliver the project, which is set to open for St. Jude patient families in the spring of 2023.

St. Jude claims that it provides housing at no cost to the patient and families that have to travel 35 miles or greater for their child’s treatment. Families may stay in Tri Delta Place, Ronald McDonald House, Target House or The Parcels at Crosstown Concourse.

The hospital believes that The Domino’s Village will help meet the increased need for housing.

St. Jude said that it has treated 2,820 new cancer patients since the start of its 2016-21 strategic plan.
