To save Patient-families great expense and needless anxiety about where they will be staying, and to allow medical staff to be able to focus upon providing the best possible medical care, we work with you to make lodging options through HOSTS for HOSPITALS known to Patient-families as close in time as possible to when the medical trip is being arranged.

Best Referral Practices

When you or your colleagues know of a Patient-family that may benefit from being able to stay at HOSTS for HOSPITALS lodging, we recommend you tell the family three things:

1 You know of a program that may have a wonderful lodging option for them.
2 If they wish, you will have someone from our program contact them.
3 They will be under no option to accept lodging if offered.

With the family’s permission you may then call, email or submit the Referral Form to provide us their contact information: 484-380-2999 | Lodging@HostsForHospitals.org.

Alternatively, referrals may be made through the easy-to-use guest application on the ‘Guest’ page of this website. Once at the page click the blue ‘Guest Application’ button. The page will automatically scroll down to an ‘Online Application’ box. The application takes about 10 minutes to complete.
