Sheri & Les Biller Patient and Family Resource Center

Judy & Bernard Briskin Hope Village
In keeping with our mission to care for the whole person — physically and emotionally — City of Hope is one of the few cancer centers in the country to offer patients and their caregivers temporary, on-site housing in a comfortable, home-like setting.
Sometimes cancer cannot be cured, despite the best efforts. The ability to spend one's last days in a comforting home-like setting and to die with dignity is the inspiration behind City of Hope’s Village Hospice. In fully equipped apartments that open out to meditative gardens, patients and their families can be together — quietly, peacefully — close to their medical care team, yet in a place all their own.
Clinical trials — research studies that involve volunteer patients — are a crucial component to developing new, more effective treatments that save lives. Many of today’s standard therapies are based on the results of previous trials, some of which were initiated at City of Hope.
Family and friends are always welcome and encouraged to visit patients during their stay at City of Hope.

Please note that for the patient's health, safety and well-being, staff may request visitors to leave the patient room and wait in the visitor lounges near the elevators on each hospital floor. While we welcome visitors aged 5 years or older, a nonpatient adult must accompany the minor at all times.
