Airbnb expanded its Open Homes program for medical stays through two new partnerships, the company announced March 26.

Four things to know:

1. Airbnb launched the medical stays program last September, which allows Airbnb hosts to offer their homes to patients traveling for critical healthcare services or respite care.

2. Airbnb has partnered with the Bone Marrow & Cancer Foundation in New York City and the Cancer Support Community in Washington, D.C., to expand this service to more patients.

3. The groups, which both support critically ill patients, will have access to free housing from Airbnb hosts through the program.

4. Airbnb is also giving the organizations more than $1.2 million in grants to cover housing for patients when free homes may not be available.
