About Our Facility

Since opening in 2007, Hope Lodge has welcomed over 15,000 guests totaling more than 147,000 nights of free lodging, a cost savings to cancer patients of over $51 million!

At Hope Lodge New York City, we understand that undergoing treatment for cancer can be a very daunting experience. For many, treatment at New York City's medical centers provides the greatest hope, but requires that they are far from home, adding the additional burden of lodging expenses.

That is why the American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Jerome L. Greene Family Center offers lodging at no cost for cancer patients being treated in and around Manhattan.

The Hope Lodge main floor is a peaceful communal space where guests can relax, read a book, or spend time with other guests and visitors.  The main floor offers many thoughtful amenities including:

  •  large lounge with a fireplace and piano
  • a family visitation room                       
  • meditation space
  • demonstration kitchen
  • computer resource center (with internet access and printer)
  • library
  • outdoor terrace and garden with views of the Empire State Building
kitchen with island and chairs for Hope Lodge guests

Hope Lodge offers 60 private guest rooms in a home-like environment.  Each guest floor includes a community kitchen and dining area, a quiet lounge, and laundry facilities. Each guest room includes:  

  • a private bath (with shower seat)
  • one king or two twin beds
  • ample closet space
  • individual heating and cooling units
  • personal refrigerator (for medication)
  • cable television
  • local telephone (with multilingual voicemail and wake-up call options)
  • wireless internet access

The environmentally friendly, “green” building provides a safe and welcoming atmosphere for our guests.

Our History

Anyone who has vacationed in Manhattan knows how expensive it can be. But what if your visit wasn’t a vacation. What if your loved one had to come for specialized, lifesaving treatment but you didn't have the cash to come and stay for weeks or months?

For years, the American Cancer Society received calls from families forced to sell their homes to get to New York for special treatments. We learned of caregivers who slept in hospital lobbies or automobiles. Many patients simply couldn’t afford to come at all. We worked hard to fill gaps and identify resources but it was never enough.

In 2007, thanks to a $10 million gift from the Jerome L. Greene Foundation, several seven-figure gifts, and many other major donors, Hope Lodge NYC opened its doors.  Guests have traveled from every state and over XX countries to receive lifesaving treatment at one of the many world-class treatment centers located in NYC.

Staff & Volunteers

The staff and volunteers are committed to making Hope Lodge a safe and caring environment and to ensure that guests are supported during their time here.  A staff person is on the premise seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
