Hackerman Patz

A Home Away from Home for Supportive Families

The Hackerman-Patz House provides a home away from home for families facing short-term or extended stays when a loved one is receiving care at the University of Maryland Rehabilitation & Orthopaedic Institute.

This on-campus, affordable housing option, located in a lovely and peaceful setting, provides a place to relax for families who have uprooted their lives in exchange for access to the very best possible care.

Patients respond better to treatment when their loved ones are near to provide support and become partners in the recovery process. The Hackerman-Patz House makes this possible for all families.
