For More Information
Any Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center patient, caregiver or family member of a patient is welcome to stay at the South Lake Union House (formerly SCCA House), or Pete Gross House while the patient is undergoing active treatment. Pete Gross House gives priority to people who need extended stays of more than one month. Only patients with a verifiable home address can be housed during treatment. A patient experiencing homelessness must first acquire an address where they can relocate to, once treatment is completed.
South Lake Union House (formerly SCCA House,) and Pete Gross House staff are working closely with our Infection Prevention team to protect residents from the spread of COVID-19.

Pre-transplant patients may stay at the South Lake Union House during their work-up period, but we suggest that you consider transferring to Pete Gross House or other private apartment at or around day zero. Pete Gross House units have full kitchens with large refrigerators and washer -dryers, allowing for greater isolation if a patient needs it. The shared spaces (community kitchen and media room) that encourage group interaction at South Lake Union House may not be ideal for patients who need isolation after transplant while their immune systems rebuild. In addition, If you are a transplant patient and wish to stay at South Lake Union House, remember to maintain as much isolation as possible, and refrain from using anything that might carry germs from person to person (kitchen sponges, towels, etc.) Your transplant team will teach you and your caregiver about the details to consider.
