When selecting a transplant center, one thing to consider is the housing option for patients on the waiting list, recovering from transplant and their caregivers. Transplant Hospitality Houses offer unique options nearby each Mayo Clinic location. Our three main hospital locations in Arizona, Minnesota, and Florida, offer housing for patients receiving long-term care in the area, mostly for transplant and cancer patients and their loved ones. These houses are not only more cost effective than a hotel, but they offer the cleanliness needed for transplant patients both pre and post care. You can read about the other benefits in this blog post. We are grateful to our transplant hospitality houses for providing our patients with a safe, friendly, and close care as a “home away from home”.
