Housing is available and assigned using a priority list for employees who are on-call and need to be at the hospital for emergencies.Located off-compound but close by are Kanakanak House, headquarters to BBAHC's Environmental Health and Injury Prevention programs, and Our House, a temporary residential facility for psychiatric patients.
