Construction on the Edmond J. Safra Family Lodge at NIH, located near the Clinical Center, was completed in 2004. The Lodge, a major project of the Foundation at NIH, represents the culmination of a dream Clinical Center employees have worked toward for nearly 10 years.With its 34 guest rooms, the Lodge will provide a retreat and sanctuary for the families and caregivers of patients who partner with NIH in clinical research. Guests experiencing the stress and anxiety that accompany the serious illness of a loved one can make the Lodge their home away from home, knowing that the patient is close by if they are needed.

A $4.75 million donation from The Edmond J. Safra Philanthropic Foundation helped NIH fund the Family Lodge. Generous contributors include the Merck Company Foundation, the Bristol-Myers Squibb Foundation, GlaxoSmithKline, and many more corporations, foundations, and individuals.
