Community Cancer Fund, Kootenai Health, and Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Inland Northwest are collaborating to develop and operate lodging for adult and pediatric patients receiving medical treatment at Kootenai Health, says Jerid Keefer, Community Cancer Fund’s executive director.

To be called the Kootenai Health Hospitality Center, the facility will provide low-cost accommodations for adult patients and their families and free accommodations for pediatric patients and their families accessing hospital and clinical services at the Coeur d’Alene hospital, Keefer says.

The two-story facility will have 14 suites for adults and six suites for pediatric patient families, he says. The hospitality center also will have kitchen, laundry, and recreational facilities.
