HHC was established in 1998 out of the need to offer a solution to the shortage of affordable lodging for out-of-town medical patients and their
family members. Although there are many hotels and motels in Cleveland, the cost can quickly deplete a family's savings. An average night's stay in a downtown Cleveland hotel can range
from $75 to $150. As a result, many people find it necessary to stay in the patient's room, in hospital waiting rooms, or even in their vehicles. Knowing there is a
home-away-from-home can eliminate the lodging issue, therefore reducing some stress during medical treatment far from home.
