The Conine Clubhouse Goes to Bat for Families of Hospitalized Children

Jeff and Cindy Conine

April 2004 — Jeff Conine, World Series champion with the Florida Marlins, was recently honored in a ceremony to dedicate the Conine Clubhouse — formerly known as the Visitors Clubhouse. "Memorial Healthcare System is an amazing organization to work with," said Conine. "It's easy to give my time and efforts to the Clubhouse. Helping kids — that's what it's all about."

This special facility has provided all the conveniences of home, free of charge, for more than 2,730 families throughout the United States and around the world. The Conine Clubhouse is conveniently located across the street from Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital and features private bedrooms with private baths and cable TV; suites for larger families; a video lending library; a communal living room; laundry facilities; a playroom for young children; an outdoor park and playground; and a chapel for quiet reflection.

Accommodations at the Conine Clubhouse offer all the comforts of home at a time when normal family routines are disrupted. But even more important, the Conine Clubhouse is a special place where families can join together, share similar experiences and offer each other encouragement.
