Lodging for Patients and Families
No one looks forward to a hospital stay, especially if it means traveling out of town. The information below may help with your preparations.
We want you and your family to feel comfortable while in our care. If you need assistance during your stay at a Legacy hospital, feel free to contact the Nursing Supervisor.
Legacy provides several low-cost housing opportunities for out-of-town patients who travel to the Portland-Vancouver area for medical treatment or to be close to family who are inpatients at Legacy hospitals.
- Green Gables Guest House — on the Legacy Good Samaritan campus, for cancer patients and their families
