Patient Resources

Overnight Stays

Several local hotels offer ‘caring’ rate discounts for patients and their families. Rates are set by the hotels. They are based on occupancy and can change at any time. Your physician can provide a note verifying a patient’s family, if needed. This can be provided by your physician’s office. Please call Patient Relations at University of Cincinnati Medical Center at (513) 584-6201 if you need assistance.

American Cancer Society, Musekamp Family Hope Lodge provides a cost-free, temporary “home away from home” for cancer patients and their caregivers at a time when they need it most.
