Mission Statement

To provide a comfortable and supportive home away from home for patients and their families traveling for medical care.

Description

Kevin Guest House is America’s first independent healthcare hospitality house. For 50 years, we’ve provided a comfortable and supportive home away from home for patients and families traveling to receive state-of-the-art healthcare in Buffalo.

Founded in 1972 by Cyril & Claudia Garvey of Sharon, PA in honor of their son Kevin who sadly lost his battle with leukemia, KGH is the inspiration for the first Ronald McDonald House in Philadelphia, PA, and more than 600 similar houses across the country and worldwide.

More than 60,000 guests have stayed at KGH since its inception, mostly originating from WNY and the Southern Tier, but also including guests from 49 states, Canada, and 11 other countries. Patients and their families are welcome regardless of age, medical condition, or healthcare provider.
