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 75 rooms/suites available to families while their child is receiving care at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital. Reservations at the house are only made through a referral by the patient’s social worker or clinic coordinator. Please contact your social worker, clinic coordinator or physician 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 requested by the social worker, clinical coordinator or physician
- Type of appointment or procedure (e.g. same day surgery, clinic appointment)
- For more details about your stay, click here.
We designed FedExFamilyHouse to provide families comfort during a difficult time. Our facility includes 30 rooms and 45 suites. All accommodations sleep up to 5 guests (including a crib) have two queen beds, a private bathroom, space for a crib, full sized closet with plenty of storage for suitcases and belongings. For families with extended stays the suites have a separate sitting area, window seat and desk. All accommodations are based on availability and can be reserved through the social worker or clinical coordinator.
