Hope Lodge NYC is set to welcome back guests in the coming weeks at 30% capacity.
An intimate gathering of supporters gathered at our Hope Lodge facility in Manhattan on June 30 to celebrate its imminent re-opening.
The Lodge, which has served 25,530 cancer patients and their caregivers from 50 states and 52 countries since opening in 2007, will be opening its doors to guests in the coming weeks at 30% capacity.
After being shuttered for 15 months because of the pandemic, supporters celebrated the reopening with a ribbon-cutting and light breakfast.
The event was made possible by the Greater New York City Board and several sponsors, Eisai, Acquis Consulting, Northwell Health, Quest Diagnostics, and TD Bank.
One hundred and twenty thousand dollars in sponsorships were raised for room renovations and improvements, COVID-related reopening costs, and operating expenses.
The Jerome L. Greene Family Center on 132 West 32nd St., one in a network of 30 Hope Lodges nationwide, has 60 rooms and has saved guests an estimated $69 million in lodging costs.
