Helping Families of Patients with Heart Failure
BOSTON, MA – Nov. 3, 2021 – The HeartBrothers House, which offers heart failure patients and their families a comfortable, inexpensive, and convenient place to stay in downtown Boston, is celebrating its first year in service this month and is eyeing plans for expansion to help even more people.
“The HeartBrothers House has already made such a positive impact on the lives of heart failure patients and their families, making their journey just a little bit easier,” said Pat Sullivan, co-founder of the HeartBrothers Foundation, a local nonprofit that provides financial and emotional assistance to patients facing heart failure and their families.
The HeartBrothers House is located at Church Park Apartments, in Boston’s Back Bay, within 2.5 miles of the city’s top hospitals. Since opening with one unit, the Heart Brothers House has expanded to include two luxury apartments. Dozens of families have occupied the units for 485 nights. They include several families with young children receiving cardiac care in Boston.
A Boston Residential Group property, Church Park is a full-service building with over 500 modern units and superb resident amenities, like a full-time doorman. Patients and families can stay in one of the available furnished apartments for only $30 a night, major savings from the average Boston hotel price of more than $300.
“We are exploring the possibility of having more apartments at the HeartBrothers House, especially as more families are seeking an affordable, safe place to stay near the major medical centers,” said Sullivan.
