The Hope Lodge in Salt Lake City is a home away from home for cancer patients seeking lifesaving treatment in Salt Lake. Lodging can be a huge barrier for those trying to access healthcare, often preventing a patient from getting the lifesaving treatment they need. This can be especially difficult for those living in rural communities. To help patients achieve the best health outcomes, the American Cancer Society is working to remove these barriers by providing free lodging at the Hope Lodge Salt Lake City. Since opening in 2015, the Hope Lodge has provided more than 53,000 nights of lodging to over 15,000 patients and caregivers at no cost. That’s a savings of $9.2 million to patients.
