This state-of-the-art facility serves as a "home away from home" for patients traveling more than 40 miles to their outpatient treatments. There is no charge to stay at Hope Lodge, for either the patient or his or her caregivers.
The AstraZeneca Hope Lodge Center in Boston allows patients to focus on their recovery by providing:
- 40 private patient suites, each with a sitting room, bathroom, and bedroom with two beds
- Common areas including a library, courtyards, and a meal preparation and dining area
- Transportation to treatment
- The on-site resources of an American Cancer Society Quality of Life Center
The Lodge provides approximately 14,000 nights of free lodging to cancer patients every year. A typical guest spends six weeks at the Lodge, saving more than $7,000.
