For Guests

The Hospital Hospitality House of Southwest Michigan offers no-cost accommodations to families of patients receiving care in any of Kalamazoo’s excellent medical facilities. We understand that going through a medical emergency is very stressful. The House provides families a comforting place to relax in a home-like setting, without the worry of determining how to pay.


The Hospital Hospitality House has two locations (Burdick Street and Henson Avenue), both are open 365 days a year, serving guests from all Michigan counties, all 50 states and many foreign countries. Over 1,200 guests annually receive no-cost overnight accommodations and/or day use of our House for those needing to rest. Each location offers a stocked kitchen, laundry facilities, family visiting area and a relaxing patio and garden area.


Each House, Burdick Street and Henson Avenue have six 2-person bedrooms and one ‘family” bedroom, all with private baths. We may place unrelated but same-gender adults in the same bedroom. We have found that our guests appreciate the company and support of others facing similar situations. To be a guest, you must receive a referral from a medical provider, hospital social worker or chaplain.
