There are many convenient, accessible housing options in the neighborhood available to out-of-town patients and families regardless of level or type of care — inpatient, outpatient, DayRehab™, or one-day evaluations - ExpertEval®. Concierge Staff in Global Patient Services will personally assist each patient to identify the housing option that would work best for their family.
Active Duty Military patients and newly injured patients covered by Worker's Compensation and their families who are traveling to Chicago may receive the first 30 days of housing at no charge. Families rest comfortably in extended-stay facilities or hotels, with amenities tailored to their needs. Most housing is just a few blocks from the hospital. Family members of these patients who need to stay beyond the initial 30 days are given priority for rooms at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab Place, an on-campus hospital hospitality house located within the Ronald McDonald House. It provides well-appointed, private bedrooms/baths on a unit for eight families with a communal kitchen and family room. For more information or to make reservation, call 1-800-354-7743 and ask for Global Patient Services.
There are also a variety of temporary housing options, all within a short walk or cab ride. There are numerous hotels in the neighborhood, from luxury accommodations at The Peninsula, Four Seasons, and Ritz Carlton to more affordable options at the Red Roof Inn, Hyatt or Marriott.
There are also several extended-stay hotels nearby that offer kitchenette suites and are set up for longer visits. Furnished one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments can be rented through Chicago’s network of corporate housing companies.
