Traveling to Houston
Caring for a loved one takes an emotional and physical toll and often turns the lives of families upside down. For families of out-of-town patients, the situation is compounded by worries over where to stay during the long process of rehabilitation. Many hotels, motels and campgrounds are located near the Texas Medical Center, and several offer special discounts for patients and visitors.
The Social Work department at TIRR Memorial Hermann has compiled a list of local hotel and motel accommodations that we make available to patients, family members and friends. Many of these facilities have wheelchair accessible rooms. Please call (713) 797-5201 for more information.
