About hospital hospitality houses:   Hospital hospitality houses (HHH) provide free or significantly reduced cost lodging to patients and their families while receiving medical care away from their home communities.  Unlike a hotel, HHHs provide opportunities for those going through similar stressful situations to come together as a community where they can support one another.
