Making Room for Growth

Aerial rendering of new tower and current House

We’ve learned a lot in our first 40 years, and we’ve spent countless hours talking with families about what makes our house special – and what could make it even better!

All of that experience and advice has been poured into concepts for the expansion and re-development of our Chestnut Street home.

Detailed architectural plans incorporating our current facilities and two adjacent lots of land are now in place, including construction of a new 8-story building, which will more than double our capacity to house, feed and nurture families through social and other support services. Once complete, our new Chestnut Street home will include:

  • A new 93,000 sq. ft. tower that will house 104 bedrooms
  • A new Welcome Center and Reception Area to greet families to the PRMH community
  • A newly constructed Cooking and Dining Center
  • Library and Quiet Lounges on each floor
  • 96 new family bedrooms, and 8 protected-patient bedroom suites
  • 12 fully wheelchair-accessible guest bedrooms
  • Indoor and outdoor play areas for children of all ages
  • A beautiful rooftop garden, featuring a walking path and quiet reflection areas
