Room Sponsors directly affect the lives of the families who call IMD Guest House “home” while their loved one is receiving medical treatment. Find out how you can support IMD Guest House.
Cancer Support Services
Through a partnership with the Editha House Foundation, the Guest House is open to cancer patients from any area Chicago hospital. IMD Guest House never turns away patients for financial reasons, to help ensure patients can receive treatment without worrying about how to afford a place to stay and being separated from their loved ones.
In partnership with the Road Home Program at the Center for Veterans and Their Families at Rush, the Guest House hosts veterans receiving treatment for PTSD in the three week intensive treatment program. Services at the Rush Road Home Program are provided regardless of discharge status or ability to pay. There is no cost to the veteran. IMD Guest House is proud to be a community partner.

No patient is turned away for the nightly rate for financial reasons. The Comfort Fund Program allows the Guest House to provide financial assistance for the nightly rate to qualified guests and supports veterans receiving treatment for PTSD in the Rush Road Home Program. Services in the Road Home Program at the Center for Veterans and Their Families at Rush are provided regardless of discharge status or ability to pay. IMD Guest House is proud to be a partner.
My brother is receiving treatment for a brain tumor and
without the IMD Guest House, we couldn’t be with him,
supporting him every day.
Brother of patient
Living with cancer is hard, but places like IMD Guest House make it less stressful, making my mom and I feel that we are at home.
I was fortunate to find the IMD Guest House. My wife
was flown to Rush Medical Center to be treated for a
rare brain illness. I came with little and had nowhere to
stay. These folks have made my burden so much lighter.
