The late Ralph Bannister's generous donation enabled UC San Diego Health System to construct the Bannister Family House. The House is named in memory of his late wife, Stella, and his late daughter, Joann. Since its opening on May 11, 1994, over 4,000 families from 50 states and 23 countries have enjoyed the comforts of "a home away from home."
All of the comforts of home are provided at the Bannister Family House…a place to sleep, to rest during the day, prepare meals, launder clothes and a place where children can lead relatively normal daily lives. By keeping family units together, we hope they may find the strength and spirit to move forward.
