Changes and improvements are coming to The Inn, and we’re excited to tell you about them. We’ve just launched our new strategic plan, #INN2025, that will serve as The Inn’s roadmap for the next several years. If you’re envisioning a dusty binder on a shelf, think again!

Our dynamic plan is the product of diligent research, inspired planning and fresh thinking that aims to accelerate The Inn’s impact on medical discovery and care.

Significant advancements in clinical care, hospitality and technology compelled our board of directors to begin the strategic planning process early last year. Throughout the 16-month process, we researched health care and hospitality trends, examined our families’ needs and the barriers they encounter to clinical trial participation, and – with appreciation that input from our stakeholders was paramount to the plan’s success – interviewed nearly 200 individuals representing Inn families, staff and board members, donors and NIH leaders and clinicians.

This engaging and educational process illuminated a few key strategic areas of focus from which three bold goals were developed. By 2025, we’re committed to achieving:

  • A state-of-the-art “smart” living environment
  • Strong support programs that better integrate discovery and care
  • A diverse group of leaders, supporters and volunteers ensuring The Inn’s
    financial viability

Our work over the next several years will encompass a diverse set of activities, from master facility planning and renovation, to implementation of new technologies, to taking a fresh look at our business model. #INN2025’s goals and objectives are complex, but its underlying principle is straightforward: we want to do more good for our families.

We look forward to sharing our progress with you as we move forward.
