The Clara McLean House

Located at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital, the Clara McLean House is a haven of hope, support services and affordable lodging for out-of-town patients, families, caregivers, and so much more. Envisioned, constructed and operated by The Foundation of FirstHealth, the Clara McLean House focuses on all the needs of families and caregivers with a loved one in FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital or FirstHealth Hospice. Outpatients also stay at the Clara McLean House while they receive treatment. 


The Clara McLean House establishes an innovative approach to hospital hospitality. In addition to providing a caring and affordable place to stay, this unique facility offers a range of patient support and advocacy services. At the Clara McLean House, hospitality is part of healing.
