If space is available, we may be able to offer you and your family in-hospital lodging during your stay with us, including on-site sleeping and shower accommodations. If space isn’t available at the hospital, or if friends and family want to stay nearby, there are a number of local lodging options in the area. These hotels are convenient, affordable, and offer shuttle service right to the hospital. Find a hotel room.
If you’re staying at an Aurora Medical Center for treatment, your dog can be brought in to visit with the permission of your care provider. Typically, dogs are the only pets allowed to visit, but you may ask your provider about other pets — the decision to allow other visiting pets is made on a case-by-case basis.
Ask your provider for details.
