What families are saying about the Hospitality Suites: Hospitality in healthcare Honoring Waitman Taylor The C. Waitman Taylor, Jr. Hospitality Suites provide family members of patients with an affordable place to stay while their loved ones receive treatment. According to Owensboro Health CEO Greg Strahan, the idea for the hospitality suites came from Taylor, a long-time executive director of Owensboro Health Foundation who died in early 2019. He wanted to bring this amenity to Owensboro Health after experiencing similar hospitality suites at other hospitals around the country when his late wife was battling cancer. His vision continues to grow, with more than 4,000 families served since the suites opened. Owensboro Health offers single and double bedroom suites that accommodate four to six people, as well as ADA-compliant suites. Financial assistance is available for the suites, which have a reduced rate of $25 to $35 per night. For more information, call 270-417-3120 .
