Become a replicable national model in the field of Hospital Guest Housing by developing a state of the art facility and delivering superior guest services which improve patient care and the healthcare delivery model.
A National Model of Care
The 8 Dimensions of Wellness
Our vision for becoming a national model of care is rooted in the US Department of Health & Human Services’ definition of the 8 dimensions of wellness. Using this image as our guide, we intentionally designed our newly constructed home to integrate a holistic approach to healing for our guests.
Mutual Support Thrives
Kathy’s House is a caring place where guests can eat, sleep, and be with others when they want – or be alone when they need time, introspection, and quiet healing.
A Critical Link in the Healthcare Supply Chain
A vital resource in the Milwaukee healthcare community, Kathy’s House is the only hospital guest house in the area that serves patients of all ages and their caregivers and serves all area hospitals.
Any patient receiving inpatient or outpatient treatment at a Milwaukee area hospital, along with their caregiver(s) is eligible to become a guest at Kathy’s House.
“Kathy’s House is a game changer for improving health equity in our region. Patients and families facing serious health conditions can access lifesaving care regardless of geography, income barriers, or lack of other resources. I support Kathy’s House because I have seen firsthand how Kathy’s House directly reduces health disparities.”
