A Fisher House is “a home away from home” for family members, caregivers or loved ones of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. It is a temporary residence and is not a treatment facility, hospice or counseling center. By law, there is no charge for any family to stay at a Fisher House operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital Fisher House
Hines Fisher House opened its doors on March 1, 2010 and has provided accommodations to over 1600 guests. Our house has 20 bedroom suites to accommodate our guests and features a fully stocked kitchen, spacious dining room and several common living room areas for families to gather and offer each other support and friendship while their loved ones are hospitalized at Hines.
The Hines Fisher House depends on donations from individuals and groups to support our programs and guests. Funds are used to provide cooking supplies, comfort items and personal necessities that family members use during their stay.
By donating directly to Hines VA Hospital, you can be assured that 100% of your donation will be used to support the Fisher House here.
