Since 1984, the Hospital Hospitality House has been “a place to call home” for more than 142,000 patients in medical crisis and their families. The House is Richmond’s premier provider of lodging and non-medical support services for these families and is the largest hospitality house in the country that operates on a donations-only basis. HHH guests come to Richmond from across Virginia, the United States and beyond. They are adults and children, transplant recipients and cancer patients, trauma victims and veterans of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The House helps them overcome distance, transportation and financial concerns to obtain the specialized medical care they need from the Virginia Commonwealth University Health System-Medical College of Virginia Hospitals (VCUHS MCVH), the McGuire Veterans Affairs Medical Center, or six other Richmond area hospitals.
