How does MediStays support hospitals and organisations?

MediStays is the go-to hospital accommodation website for medical and healthcare professionals. 

Until MediStays, social workers, nurses and administration staff dedicated countless hours compiling lists of accommodation options near hospitals and telephoning properties to access discounted rates for their patients and loved ones.

An efficient and reliable solution.

Medical social workers and nurses have described how frustrating and time consuming it can be to compile accommodation lists, telephone properties and search holiday websites for patient accommodation.

Simply access our MediStays discounted rates at a range of reviewed, trusted and reliable properties.
