Eligibility Guidelines

  • You are a family member or friend of a patient who is receiving care through UC San Diego Health. 
  • You live 65+ miles away from UC San Diego Health hospitals. 
  • You meet the minimum night requirement: three nights (Bannister Family House) and five nights (Hospitality Suites).
  • The patient's social worker has completed a lodging referral for you.  

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.  

Please note: There are no medical services provided at either of our locations. In some cases, a patient who has been discharged but still needs to be near a hospital may move into a room with a caregiver if the patient's doctor determines it is medically necessary.
