American Cancer Society Picks R&O Construction to Build Downtown Hope Lodge

Press Release

September 26, 2013

Salt Lake City — The American Cancer Society selected R&O Construction as the builder of its newest Hope Lodge.

The Hope Lodge will be a 63,000-square-foot home away from home for cancer patients and their caregivers who travel to Salt Lake from rural Utah and surrounding states for treatment. By offering a free place to stay, the Hope Lodge allows cancer patients who may otherwise choose to forego treatment because of travel costs and associated expenses to focus on their treatment plan and path to healing and recovery.

“The Hope Lodge Campaign Board is committed to bringing this much-needed resource to those fighting cancer,” said Katie Eccles, Hope Lodge campaign chair. “Our selection of a builder means we are one step closer to ensuring that people from all over the region get the care they deserve, without having to worry about where they will stay or how they will afford the extra expenses.”

The Hope Lodge will be built at 100 S. and 400 E. in Salt Lake City and will be the first of its kind to serve the Intermountain West, which includes Utah, Nevada, Arizona and Wyoming. It is expected to include 42 private suites and serve nearly 800 patients annually.

“It is always satisfying to join a cause that will better the lives of thousands over time,” said Dale Campbell, president of R&O Construction. “We know there is an urgent need for a Hope Lodge in Salt Lake and that it will serve many deserving people”

The Hope Lodge fundraising campaign is an $18 million venture, $13.2 million of which has been donated so far. On Sept. 26, the American Cancer Society will host its 2013 Hope Gala. For more information on the gala or the Hope Lodge, visit" target="_blank">
