Beacon House becomes a home away from home for patients and families that travel across the U.P. to receive specialty medical care at U.P. Health System- Marquette and the Upper Peninsula Medical Center.
The private, nonprofit, donation-based organization ensures that families never have to ask, “Where am I going to stay and how am I ever going to be able to afford it?” during a medical crisis. As the Upper Peninsula’s only hospitality house, Beacon House oversees the facilities at two locations, 33 private rooms at Beacon House and 21 rooms called Hospitality Rooms at UPHS – Marquette.
Our Plans for a new Beacon House include you!
For 16 years, Beacon House on Third St. in Marquette has been a home away from home for patients and their families receiving critical medical care at UPHS. The hospital is moving. To continue our mission as the U.P.’s only hospitality house, we need a new facility. Learn more about our plans.
Our new house will be designed to be a Hospitality House, from the ground up.
Our floor plan will be welcoming to all families. Using U.P. contractors and donated services, we hope to be able to start building as close to the opening of UPHS-Marquette in 2018. A grass-roots campaign “Legacy of Love” includes every U.P. community coming together.
