Tennessee Valley Healthcare System will become the proud recipient of the Tennessee Fisher House!
The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America's active military and Veterans in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform and the hardships of service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Because Veterans, members of the military and their families are stationed worldwide and must often travel great distances for specialized medical care, Fisher House Foundation donates "comfort homes," built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. These homes enable family members to be close to a loved one at the most stressful times - during the hospitalization for an unexpected illness, disease, or injury.
As the recipients of the Tennessee Fisher House we will enhance our patient-centered care efforts by providing temporary housing for those family members that provide support to our Nation's Heroes.
