Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center offers temporary medical lodging facilities for our patients and families while receiving treatment at Fred Hutch. We strive to provide access to affordable, peaceful and safe accommodations.
If you are coming to Seattle from out of town to receive care at Fred Hutch, we recommend that you arrange temporary housing as soon as you know your arrival date. We have two patient housing buildings available to Fred Hutch patients and families who need temporary lodging while undergoing active treatment. Housing options can accommodate either short-term or long-term (30 night minimum) lodging as medically necessary to remain close during treatment at Fred Hutch.
Following the merger of long-time partners, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, the organization was renamed to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center. We are an independent, nonprofit organization that also serves as UW Medicine's cancer program.
Note for blood and marrow transplant patients: Patients undergoing a bone marrow or stem cell transplant are asked to live within a 30-minute drive (in heavy traffic) of the Fred Hutch South Lake Union clinic or University of Washington Medical Center - Montlake.
