Fisher House is "a home away from home" for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. In 2011, Fisher Houses in the US served more than 17,000 families, who stayed on average for 10 days while the patient was the hospital for 45-60 days. This program also saved families more than $25 million in lodging costs, plus food and transportation.
