The Bissell House Bed & Breakfast is Providing Pasadena Doctors Stay at No Cost During the COVID-19 Emergency

We are raising money to provide rooms & recuperation to the front line ICU & Emergency Team doctors at Huntington Hospital in Pasadena at no charge to them.

The Huntington Hospital complex is already treating COVID-19 patients, and is fervently preparing for thousands of patients over the next several weeks or months from all over the Los Angeles & Pasadena Metro areas.

Many doctors are seriously concerned that they may inadvertently infect their families if they go home.

Our frontline doctors will be working punishing hours on-end for days at a time.


The Bissell House in South Pasadena California has quickly repurposed the property, in cooperation with Huntington Hospital, to provide no cost room stays for the front line ICU and emergency services team of doctors.
