Wyatt Guest House to Close June 30

The Wyatt Guest House has provided a comfortable, low-cost lodging option for Ellis Fischel Cancer Center patients and families for nearly 20 years. Unfortunately, the costs of operating the facility continue to climb, and MU Health Care is facing mounting expenses to replace multiple mechanical systems in the guest house. After thoughtful consideration, we are closing the Wyatt Guest House at the end of June. We will continue to offer rooms through June 26, after which, the facility will be retired.

In order to ensure these low-cost lodging options continue for our patients receiving care at Ellis Fischel, we have developed an agreement with a local hotel to provide rooms for patients and families who previously relied on the Wyatt Guest House. This alternative will provide many of the same conveniences of the Wyatt Guest House with the same discounted, sliding-scale fees available to current guests.

Patients interested in requesting lodging accommodations should continue to call 573-884-1825.
