Family support is an important component of rehabilitation at Craig Hospital. We offer a wide variety of programs specifically designed to support families, including housing for outpatients and families of inpatients, either in our on-site family housing facility or in a nearby hotel. First priority for the on-site housing suites is given to our outpatients. For families of newly injured rehabilitation inpatients who live more than 60 miles from Denver, we offer up to thirty days at no charge. If no on-site unit is available, we will provide housing in a nearby hotel. After thirty days, housing is available at a discounted rate on-site or at a nearby hotel depending on availability.
