Weston House opened in October 2004 and includes a state-of-the-art training and development suite for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) staff and the Paul O'Gorman Patient Hotel, which provides 30 short-stay family rooms and eight long-stay transitional care flats.
Weston House allows children who do not need to be in a nursed bed to stay near the hospital. This is less stressful for the whole family and offers a home-from-home environment.
All the artworks chosen for Weston House are intended to appeal to a wide audience. They have been created by different artists working in a range of media. They include:
- Two donor recognition commissioned artworks which celebrate the generous support of Children with Leukaemia, Garry Weston and the Garfield Weston Foundation.
- A large sculpture called ‘Noah’s Ark’ by the Mexican artist Heriberto Ortega – a generous donation from the estate of Deborah Weil.
- A range of paintings, photographs and prints by a number of artists including Alex Lowery, Jack Milroy, Katty Mcmurray, Helen Fay and Erin Burns.
