How long will I need to be in Houston?
Patients are normally here between three to five days on an outpatient basis.
Should I bring a family member with me?
Patients are encouraged to bring at least one person with them if possible.
Where do I stay if I become a patient?
Generally, your first appointment and many of your treatments can be done on an outpatient basis. If you're traveling a long distance, check out our lodging and travel information for hotels, RV parks and other facilities in the Houston and Medical Center areas.
There are also several low-cost and long-term lodging options offered by MD Anderson. Our existing patients can contact the Social Work department for information about courtesy or low-cost housing, and other services that may be available to them. The Social Work department can be reached at 713-792-6195 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Central Standard Time, Monday through Friday.
