When a loved one is ill, the last thing you need to worry about is finding a place to stay. Throughout the years, many individuals have been forced to stay in waiting rooms and hospital lounges when a family member required an extended hospital stay. Since 1994, thanks to the many generous individuals and businesses who funded the project, the spacious, Victorian-style Hubbard House is available right on Orlando Health’s main campus.
Referrals to the Hubbard House are based on the severity of a patient’s condition and on the traveling distance of family members. Although Arnold Palmer Hospital physicians and designated staff members can refer a family to the Hubbard House, the manager will make the final determination. Most guest rooms and suites can accommodate up to five.
A per-night donation helps to cover operating costs and ensures that this worthwhile service will always be available to families in need.
Hubbard Housee offers many amenities to its guests, including:
- 16 rooms with two double beds and full baths
- Five efficiency suites with full baths
- Communal kitchen with dishes and cookware
- Communal dining room
- 21,000 square feet of living space

- Age-specific playrooms for children

Most guest rooms and suites can accommodate up to five.
Supported by the Community
Absolutely everything involved in the construction of the Hubbard House was funded by donations from employees, local businesses and community members. Our dedicated staff alone contributed more than $250,000 toward construction of this much-needed facility. Additional donations provide for the home's day-to-day operation. Truly, the Hubbard House is a gift from the hearts of many.
A gift to Hubbard House will help make an incredible difference in the lives of others. Almost always at 100 per cent occupancy, Hubbard House is able to remain in operation through the generosity of tax-deductible donations. While guests do pay a "nominal" donation to stay at Hubbard House, donations play a vital role in funding the daily expenses of this "home away from home". Each tax-deductible gift to Hubbard House counts, no matter the size.

About the Hubbard Family
When businessman and philanthropist Francis Evans Hubbard moved to Orlando in 1925, Orange General Hospital (now Orlando Health) was the only community hospital in the area. Realizing the critical need for adequate medical care, Mr.Hubbard immediately became involved. Since that time, the family has collectively given more than 90 years of their time to support our organization. It was in appreciation of these years of service that we dedicated our new "home" to this special family.
