WHAT IS A FISHER HOUSE?
A Fisher House is “a home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. The homes are normally located within walking distance of the treatment facility or have transportation available. As of November, 2020, there are 90 Fisher Houses located in the U.S., Germany and United Kingdom.
Fisher House Southern California, Inc. supports four Fisher Houses throughout Southern California including the VA Long Beach Healthcare System, Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton, and Naval Medical Center San Diego. Here’s a closer look at the houses we support:
FISHER HOUSE - NAVAL HOSPITAL CAMP PENDLETON
This facility provides a “home away from home” at no cost for families of patients admitted for medical care at the Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton or affiliated medical centers. The Fisher House represents the commitment to provide quality care and support to guests during a time of need. The Fisher House – Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton offers comfortably furnished rooms with bathrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, living, dining, laundry and play rooms.
Due to the overwhelming demand to stay at this facility, Fisher House Southern California recently provided funds to convert an existing children’s playroom at the facility into a new guest room. The newly remodeled and furnished room hosted its first guests in October 2017, adding an additional 365 free lodging nights for military families.
