Tour Our Home

In February 2005, St. Mary’s moved to a new 88,000-square-foot building in suburban Norfolk that was designed especially for the needs of our children and young adults, their families and our staff. This state-of-the art building is one of a few of its kind nationwide designed and built exclusively for providing quality care in a home-like environment for children and young adults with severe disabilities.

Our children and young adults benefit from a comfortable, home-like environment where we keep treatment areas separate from sleeping areas.

Features include:

  • Four residential “neighborhoods,” each with a nurses’ station and six four-person bedrooms
  • Four interior courtyards, including one with a playground with adaptive play equipment and one with a hydrotherapy pool and fountain
  • Two private family visitation rooms
  • Physicians’ offices, dentist office and barber and beauty shop
  • Spacious hallways to accommodate the children’s wheelchairs
  • Eight educational classrooms
  • Rooms and hallways with large windows and skylights
  • Modern environmental control systems
