Who We Are
Healing Flats is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to help provide comfortable and affordable accommodations for out-of-town Mayo Clinic patients whose procedures require long-term stay.
Many Mayo Clinic patients have unique needs that hotels cannot accommodate. Longer-term housing is expensive, and the locations that do provide low-cost options have shared facilities, which make comfort more difficult to achieve.
We provide low-cost, apartment-style living that offers privacy and comfort for patients and caregivers. We welcome patients with chronic diseases (such as cancer) or illnesses requiring long-term treatment.

About Healing Flats
Healing Flats was founded by Mike and me in 2020. In the last months of his six-year journey with cancer, Mike saw a vision for providing longer-term, comfortable, and affordable housing for patients near Mayo Clinic, his primary location for treatment.
Mayo Clinic offers world class treatments for physical care. In our journey with cancer, we also saw a need for spiritual and emotional care, including a quiet place to rest after long days of appointments and procedures.
Our prayer is that Healing Flats will offer patients a little bit of that same support and respite. Mike was blessed with so many miracles during his six years of cancer; our prayer is that Healing Flats can be part of your journey in finding hope and miracles.
Our family relied on the hope of Jesus and the support of our community to find joy in a life well-lived. Healing Flats was founded out of that joy and journey.
