5/13/2020: Coronavirus Update
The SECU Family House is currently reopened for guests.
Illness and injury don’t pause for a pandemic. That’s why the SECU Family House has been working with hospital and community partners to ensure compliance with national and local guidelines to reopen as soon as possible after our April closure.
We will be strict in increasing occupancy slowly. You may see interruptions or delays in our ability to accommodate families in our usual manner.
We are encouraging all guests to have a solid backup plan in place in the event that we are not able to honor your request due the rapidly changing environment.
Our house and services will look a little different for the time being, so we thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation. Detailed procedures and changes will be explained thoroughly to each family as they check in.
Affordable lodging for Novant Health and Wake Forest Baptist Health patients and caregivers. Stay near the hospital and your loved one.
