Tree House: A Place for Families

Tree House - A place for families

When someone you love is in the hospital with a serious illness or injury, the last thing you want to do is drive home at the end of a long day. But when you don't live near the hospital or have accommodations close by, what do you do?

Tree House: A Place for Families offers family housing right across the street from the campuses of MultiCare Tacoma General Hospital and Mary Bridge Children's Hospital. Named in honor of the Mary Bridge Festival of Trees annual fundraising event, Tree House offers all the comforts of home while you concentrate on helping your loved one recover. 

Who Can Stay at Tree House?

We offer housing for immediate family members when their loved ones receive medical care at a MultiCare hospital. Priority is given to families who have children at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital or in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Tacoma General Hospital.

Guest need a referral from a MultiCare clinical or social work staff member and a completed application.

A criminal background check is required for all guests. Parental/Guardian consent is required for all background checks for minors

How Much Does It Cost?

Our nightly rate is $55. However, we understand that families caring for a loved one who is ill or injured may also face significant financial burden. We offer financial assistance so that no eligible family is turned away because of inability to pay.

How Can I Learn More or Schedule a Stay?
