Eligibility and Room Fees

Eligibility Guidelines

  • Priority is assessed by the social and medical needs of the family, occupancy levels, and distance traveled to obtain treatment. Additionally:
    • The patient must be receiving care at UC San Diego Health
    • Must meet minimum stay requirements
    • Guests must be 18+ years or accompanied by an adult
    • One room per patient family allowed
    • Guests must be ambulatory; Houses are not medical facilities
    • Pets are not allowed (please contact staff regarding Service Animals)

If you meet these criteria, you will be placed on a waiting list, and we will assign a room to you as accommodations become available. Priority is given to a patient's life-threatening circumstances as opposed to procedural surgeries and diagnostic testing.
