why do we need a new hospital guest house

Traveling to  another  city to  receive medical treatment can be very stressful. Patients' families have the added challenge of finding affordable lodging within traveling distance.The Hospital Guest House of Southern Appalachia (HGH). meets this challenge by providing a low-cost home away from home serving all area healthcare facilities.

Typical guests cannot make daily round trips from home to  be with - heir  patient. Quite often, guests live   a  considerable  distance  from   our   medical facilities yet must arrive early for morning medical appointments  or outpatient  treatments. By staying with  the HGH, they__ an  awake refreshed, ready for their    appointments   and  travel   safely  to   their appointments in daylight.

HGH provides much needed support to patients and their  families utilizing Johnson City medical facilities as well  as the  Veterans Affairs  Medical Center at Mountain Home. Hospital Guest  House offers not only physical·accommodations but also allows fami­ lies to_ be close to their loved ones in an atmosphere of caring alongside other families faced with similar situations. This added layer of support can be invaluable  to  families who  have had to  travel far from  their  familiar  support  systems to  be with  a loved one in time of medical need.
