Our mission of service started in 1999 as The Arizona Transplant House, a respite for recuperating whole-organ transplant patients. Previously an Arabian horse ranch belonging to Ed and Ruth Tweed, the property was donated to Mayo Clinic in the 1990’s, by their daughter Sally Tweed Groom. At that time, the property had space for 7 patients.
Responding to innovations in surgeries, clinical trials, and medical treatments not foreseen when Arizona Transplant House was established, the Board of Directors broadened the mission to provide services to a wider range of patients. Consistent with the new mission, the corporation name changed to Help In Healing Home Foundation. With this change, HIHH provides a home-away-from-home for whole-organ, stem cell and bone marrow transplant patients, as well as cancer patients.
Today, Help In Healing Home is located at The Village at Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona, accommodating 42 patient/caregiver teams.
