“We are very thankful that the Board of Visitors found us worthy of its support once again,” remarked Bill Timmons, commenting on the relationship that began back in 1997.

He added, “These funds will give us additional resources to operate our new one-of-a-kind children’s hospital.”

Hacienda Children’s Hospital opened in August of 2015. The family-focused hospital provides transitional care for medically fragile children who need more time to heal while their parents are trained on how to care for them.

Designed with 24 private rooms, the hospital has four themed wings decorated as jungle, circus, sky, and playground. The design elements express a playful nature that is well suited for children while optimizing the patient and family experience. The use of indoor and outdoor spaces, healing gardens, play areas, and bright colorful interiors provide an environment that enhances the healing process.

Hacienda HealthCare traces its roots to 1967 when it was founded in Phoenix as “Hacienda de los Angeles” and operated as a single facility serving three children. Today, Hacienda HealthCare offers over 30 programs and services designed to address the medical and therapeutic needs of medically fragile infants, children, teens and young adults.

Recognized for its exceptional quality of care by the American Health Care Association, the organization also serves individuals who have intellectual and developmental disabilities.
