Welcome to HeartBrothers House at Church Park Apartments in downtown Boston—dedicated lodging for Heart Failure patients and their families through the duration of hospitalization or clinic care.
LAUNCHING THE DREAM
Launched in 2020, HeartBrothers House is the culmination of a dream born when we were recovering from our own heart transplants years ago—we had witnessed first-hand how challenging it was to cover spouses’ astronomical lodging costs as they traveled back and forth while we received critical care, had LVADs implanted, waited for donor hearts, and recovered from our transplants.
As we told WCVB-5 in this TV interview, Heart Failure doctors, nurses, and social workers have consistently identified short-term housing costs and availability as the greatest gap in care for Heart Failure patients and their families. Since launching the HeartBrothers in 2014, families approaching us for financial support have most frequently cited the soaring costs of hotels and short-term housing near Heart Failure Centers as their biggest non-medical economic burden.
We could not be more elated to invite Heart Failure patients and their families to stay with us at HeartBrothers House today.
HeartBrothers House offers one-bedroom apartments
at just $49 per night for Heart Failure families.
