What We Do

IMD Guest House provides comfortable, affordable, temporary lodging for patients and their families who must travel to Chicago for medical treatment. We also support veterans.

IMD Guest House provides the comfort of home and the care of community not only to patients affected by a diagnosis, regardless of age or economic status, but also to their families, and caregivers. We aim to eliminate temporary lodging barriers for patients and their families who must access medical care away from home. When a loved one receives a diagnosis, the entire family is affected.

How We Work

IMD Guest House is the only facility in Chicago to provide low cost temporary lodging for patients of any age, receiving any type of medical treatment. Our already reduced nightly rate of $65 is about 1/4 the cost of the nearest hotel, but hundreds of guests often face major hardships with unexpected costs related to a diagnosis.

Your support of IMD Guest House helps provide temporary lodging for patients seeking treatment in Chicago, and their families. Many of our guests could not complete treatment without our services and your support.

Hospital and Program Partners

Hospital and Program Partners help provide advanced support for patients and their families in-need seeking health and hope through cutting-edge care from our world-class medical systems. Helping enable patients, veterans and their families to focus on their treatment plan.

Patients outside of these groups may be welcomed through our Pay As You Go Program.



Your Impact

Your support provides hope and comfort for patients and their families who cannot afford the nightly rate. Helping to ensure no patient is turned away for financial reasons.

Each year, the need for our support increases. The Comfort Fund ensures no patient in need is ever turned away for limited resources, enabling many patients to complete treatment. The Comfort Fund is only possible because of your generosity. Thank you.
