In the 1970’s my mother and father learned that the Salt Lake City Shriners Hospital had a need for housing. Many families of children being treated at the hospital had only one option… to stay in hotels which were expensive and far from the hospital.
The idea was born to provide a clean studio apartment for those needing a place to stay, at low cost, close to the hospital.
Now, 40+ years later, our family provides fully furnished studio, one bedroom, 2 bedroom, 3 bedroom apartments to those in need of the same thing – a low cost, clean apartment, within walking distance to most of the major hospitals in Salt Lake City.
Although we began this project with the families in mind, it has extended to accommodate traveling nurses, doctors, medical specialists and other hospital staff members. These individuals may not have taken the temporary positions at the hospital were it not for our affordable, short-term medical housing. Our apartments have also doubled as dorms for interns fulfilling a brief residency that a one-year lease could not accommodate. This helps the hospitals to provide superior and specific treatment for their patients which may not have been available otherwise. It is our goal to help the families, doctors and staff of the hospitals, which down the line will provide support for the patients.
Talk to the Hospitals– our Reputation speaks for itself!
