We make it easier for families to support their loved one receiving medical care by providing them a homelike, comforting place to stay.
Hospital Hospitality House of Southwest Michigan was established in 1985 as a vision of the Junior League of Kalamazoo, in collaboration with Borgess Medical Center and Bronson Methodist Hospital. We are a proud member of the Healthcare Hospitality Network. The House is a nonprofit organization supported by contributions from individuals, civic groups, businesses, foundations, and our hospital partners.
Kalamazoo is a caring and generous community and the House exemplifies that spirit. We welcome families of patients receiving care in any of our excellent medical facilities serving as emotional support and relief from the financial burden of having to pay for lodging. This enables family members to stay close to loved ones who are facing medical emergencies which is proven to promote healing, better aftercare and greater peace of mind for the patient.
The House is open 365 days a year, serving guests from all Michigan counties, all 50 states and many foreign countries. Over 1,000 guests annually receive no-cost overnight accommodations and/or day use of our House for those needing to rest. The House offers kitchen and laundry facilities, family visiting areas and a relaxing patio and garden area.
Please visit our FAQs or Contact Us with any questions you might have. If you would like to support the House, please visit our Donate and Wish List page. No guest is turned away, and no one is excluded for employment/volunteer opportunities because of ethnicity, race, age, gender identity, sexual orientation, economic status, physical and/or mental abilities and characteristics, religion or philosophy.
