Amenities of the Mario Pastega House include a chapel, outdoor patio and garden areas, children’s toys, central kitchen and dining area, living/recreation areas and on-site laundry facilities. Outside are three RV parking spaces with full hookups. To offer further hospitality, the house is staffed seven days a week. The suggested nightly fee for a room or RV hookup is $20, but no one is turned away for lack of funds.

All that’s required for a patient to use the facility is a home address 25 miles or more away, a photo ID and a referral from a medical provider or hospital staff member.

Guests at the Mario Pastega House will be accepted according to the following minimum requirements:

  • A provider referral is needed to book a room or RV space.
  • Guests will be patients or representatives of patients currently receiving services through Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center.
  • Guests will have a referral from a medical staff member or other appropriate hospital staff (chaplain, social worker, discharge planner, etc.).
  • Guests are able to care for their own health and personal care needs, or they have a companion who will stay and provide all necessary assistance.
  • A room is available.
  • Guests live 25 miles or more from Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center.
  • Guests must present a valid photo ID upon registering.
  • Guests under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

In Addition:

  • All guests will be informed about, and encouraged to pay, the nightly room fee. However, no one will be turned away because of inability to pay.
  • Pastega House staff will not provide guests with medical care or assistance with activities of daily living.
  • Accommodations generally will be limited to one guest room for each patient, with a maximum of two adults in each room.
  • A portable crib will be available for accommodating an infant/toddler.
  • Length of stay at the guest house generally will be limited to 30 consecutive days. However, special circumstances (for example, extended radiation therapy) will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
  • To fulfill its mission to serve traveling patients and their families fairly and compassionately, the Mario Pastega House has developed policies to ensure consistency in the guest referral and check-in process. Unfortunately, not every request can be fulfilled.
