Overnight Stay for Guests in the Hospital

Helen Rossi House

The Helen K. Rossi Volunteer Guest House, including the University of Iowa Children's Hospital Family Suite, provides family-centered lodging and support services to families of patients far from home during their treatment.

The University of Iowa Children's Hospital Family Suite rooms primarily serve family members of patients receiving care in the Pediatric and Neonatal Intensive Care Units. The Adult Family Suite rooms primarily serve families of adult patients in Medical and Surgical Intensive Care Units.

Rooms are similar to a hotel room—two beds, private bath, television and private phone with voice mail capabilities. The shared amenities include a vending/dining area, refrigerator, microwave, laundry facilities, and a family lounge with computer and Internet access.

Because it can be difficult to determine the length of stay, no reservations are taken. However, you may call 48 hours before a family member is admitted to reserve a space on the waiting list.

Referrals to the Guest House are accepted from any UI Hospitals and Clinics staff, or guests may refer themselves.

The room rate for the Adult Family Suite is $30 per night. The room rate for the UI Children's Hospital Family Suite is $10 per night. This reduction is made available through the generous support of Wal-Mart and Sam's Club associates through Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
