Lodging

Transplant housing is available for patients who live more than one hour away from University of Mississippi Medical Center facilities in Jackson. The patient and one caregiver can stay at a provided hotel during:

  • Outpatient transplant evaluation process.
  • Immediately after discharge from the transplant. After discharge, you may be well enough to leave the hospital, but your doctor may want you to stay closer to University Hospital instead of traveling home and returning frequently for clinic visits. You should plan for a five-day hospital stay after transplant and a one- to two-week stay at the hotel after discharge.

Hotel accommodations will not be provided for an overnight stay the evening prior to the patient's transplant.

In order to stay comfortably at the hotel, you should have the following:

  • Caregiver – someone to drive and take care of you.
  • Transportation to and from the clinic and hospital.
  • Money for food for yourself and your caregiver
