USS Hope

The hospital's award-winning USS Hope cancer and sickle cell treatment center uses "distraction therapy" to give young patients the feeling of traveling in a submarine during their visit! It is the only facility of its kind in the region. The USS Hope features bright and cheerful colors, comfortable seating, television/computers, and exotic fish tanks to help relieve patient and family anxieties.
