Connelly Hospitality House is a comfortable and secure lodging facility for cancer patients and their families who travel more than 50 miles to receive cancer treatment in Farmington. When the house isn’t fully occupied, families of those hospitalized with a traumatic injury or medical emergency and who meet the distance requirement are also welcome.
Connelly House is located directly south of San Juan Regional Medical Center and is equipped to serve eight families. This home away from home has a large kitchen, food pantry, laundry, library, fireplaces and beautifully landscaped outdoor areas. Patients and guest stay in safety and comfort close to health care services. Guests forge friendships with other families affected by cancer, traumatic injury, or medical emergency.
In addition, a parking area with three full hook-ups for recreational vehicles is just a few steps from the front door.
Jerry and Bonnie Connelly were local residents who fought Jerry’s battle with cancer together. After staying at a patient lodging facility in Houston, Texas, they returned to Farmington with the hope of creating a hospitality house to serve the Four Corners area. They established the Connelly Hospitality House fund in 1991. Bonnie and hundreds of donors and volunteers worked tirelessly until the Connelly’s dream was fulfilled.
Ongoing funding support is very much appreciated. Donate
