Home Away From Home
Home Away From Home is a program that provides sleeping rooms for out-of-town family members of hospital patients. Our facility has nine private rooms, meals, laundry facilities and other services for outpatients and family members requiring an extended stay. While there is not a charge for guests, a $25 donation is welcome.
Rooms are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis except for persons with specific reservations. There is a two-room maximum per patient family (4 beds). Reservations are strongly encouraged. If at all possible, please check in between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
Guests may check in up to 24 hours before the first scheduled procedure or admission. Guests may remain an additional 24 hours after discharge from Cheyenne Regional Medical Center and/or until released by the physician.
For guest check-in, please contact the volunteer reception desk, (307) 633-7061.
