Your Stay in the Buffalo Area
After your discharge from Roswell Park, you’ll need to stay in the Buffalo area for several weeks. This will enable us to monitor your progress closely and manage any medical concerns that may arise.
If you’re coming to Roswell Park from outside Western New York, we will assist you with housing arrangements. Thanks to our collaboration with the Ontario Ministry of Health, there is no out-of-pocket cost for lodging for Canadian patients and their caregivers.
We have made special arrangements for our Canadian BMT patients to stay in the following locations, all approved for your post-transplant stay:
Kevin Guest House (KGH) is just steps from the Roswell Park hospital. A Victorian-era home with a bed-and-breakfast atmosphere, it offers the convenience of a fully equipped central kitchen so you can prepare the meals you like best. A continental breakfast is provided each day, and you may choose to join other guests in the dining room several nights a week for complimentary meals served by local volunteers. KGH provides free laundry facilities, free WiFi, air conditioning, off-street parking, and a garden with gazebo, and is a short walk from Buffalo’s rapid transit system. Guests who stay in the main house share a bathroom. After transplant, BMT patients stay in a two-bedroom apartment with private bath, next to the main house.
