We know a hospital visit can be overwhelming and stressful. FedExFamilyHouse was designed by families for families. Our goal is to provide a place for rest and comfort while your child is receiving care at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Thanks to generous donors, there is no charge to stay at FedExFamilyHouse.
FedExFamilyHouse has 24 suites available to families while their child is receiving care at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Reservations at the house are only made through the patient’s social worker or clinic coordinator. Please contact your social worker or clinic coordinator directly to ask for a referral to the house.
Due to the limited space, we take a few things into account:
- How far a family is traveling
- Length of stay
- Type of appointment or procedure (e.g., same day surgery, clinic appointment)
We designed FedExFamilyHouse to provide families comfort during a difficult time. Our facility includes 24 suites. Each suite has two beds, a private bathroom, window seat, space for a crib, desk and a closet with plenty of storage for suitcases and belongings.
Before you come, be sure to check out our virtual tour.
