How Money is Expensed
2014 Statement of Activity
The Illinois Medical District (IMD) Guest House provides the comforts of home and the care of community to outpatients and the families of patients who must seek treatment away from home through convenient fully furnished one-bedroom apartments. IMD Guest charges a maximum nightly rate of $60. No patient is turned away for financial reasons. Often times, the last thing being considered in the treatment plan is where the patient will stay in between treatments and where his or her family and caregivers will stay. For many critically ill patients and their family members, IMD Guest House is the answer.
