TIRR Memorial Hermann treats people with a range of disabilities from complex conditions like brain injury, stroke, spinal cord injury, multiple trauma and amputation, to rehabilitation for conditions including multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, post-polio syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Caring for a loved one takes an emotional and physical toll and often turns the lives of families upside down. For families of out-of-town patients, the situation is compounded by worries over where to stay during the long process of rehabilitation. Many hotels, motels and campgrounds are located near the Texas Medical Center, and several offer special discounts for patients and visitors. The Social Work department at TIRR Memorial Hermann has compiled a list of local hotel and motel accommodations that we make available to patients, family members and friends. Many of these facilities have wheelchair accessible rooms.

If you are planning to park for several consecutive days or for repeated visits to the Texas Medical Center, we encourage you to purchase a Pre-paid SmartChip. Pre-paid SmartChips offer unlimited 24-hour, in-and-out privileges at DD Lot and Garage 6.
There are 2 options available:
Both Pre-paid SmartChip options are activated upon your next visit after purchase. Please note that when you purchase a Pre-paid SmartChip for the first time you will still need to pay separately for that visit using the yellow SmartChip you received at entry. The Pre-paid SmartChip can then be used upon your next visit. There are no expiration dates, you can use them directly at the entry and exit machines, and the remaining value is displayed when used here. A maximum of $12 is deducted from the SmartChip each calendar day (midnight to midnight).
Pre-paid SmartChips may be purchased at the pay on foot station inside the main TIRR building entrance at the DD Lot.
