Kathy’s House, a Hospital Guest House

Kathy’s House — a non-profit Hospital Guest House

Kathy’s House provides lodging and a supportive environment to families who are experiencing one of life’s most stressful situations — personal illness or the serious illness of a loved one.  They provide a true “home away from home” for patients and/or for their caregivers.   Guests at Kathy’s House can eat, sleep, and be with others when they want — or choose to be alone when they need time, introspection, and quiet healing.

Kathy’s House is the only hospital guest house in the area that serves families and caregivers, regardless of the patients’ age, who need to travel to Milwaukee for medical care.  They are committed to provide affordable lodging and caring support for patients and their families.

Kathy’s house was first opened in July 2001, and they currently operate an 18-bedroom home in a pleasant residential neighborhood on the western outskirts of Milwaukee.  Construction is near completion for a new, larger Kathy’s House across the street from Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin that will allow helping twice as many patients and their families.  This new home will also serve as a replicable national model in the field of Hospital Guest Housing, providing an exemplary guest experience in a state-of-the-art House.   This model of care aims to provide eight dimensions of wellness, including:

  • Emotional
  • Spiritual
  • Intellectual
  • Physical
  • Environmental
  • Financial
  • Occupational
  • Social
