ORGAN AND TISSUE PROCUREMENT ORGANIZATION PROVIDES HOUSING FOR TRANSPLANT PATIENTS | December 27, 2013
Mid-America Transplant Services recently unveiled The Family House, which offers affordable housing for pre- and post-transplant families needing to relocate to St. Louis to be closer to the transplant center hospital. The company leased 10 single-family apartments near the hospital and will provide the fully-furnished units to patients at a discount.
The Family House provides a comfortable “home away from home” for patients while they endure a stressful time. The apartments have between one and three bedrooms, and provide many of the amenities of home – kitchens, laundry facilities, and access to a fitness center. Mid-America Transplant Services hopes this benefit will eliminate some of the barriers for those awaiting a transplant and provide comfort to pre- and post-transplant patients.
