Additional information

  • Because treatment times can vary, we do not impose stay limits, and thus we never know when rooms will be available. We are happy to take room requests as far in advance as possible, however, no accommodations can be guaranteed until within 24 hours of your intended arrival.
  • Accommodations are offered to those family members involved in the daily care of the patient.
  • Guests must be able to independently care for themselves or come with a caregiver.
  • Siblings are welcome as long as they are supervised by a parent or another adult family member. Child care is not provided.

Amenities
