New Fisher House Planned for Perry Point, MD

The Perry Point VA Medical Center, a division of the VA Maryland Health Care System, is one of 14 sites selected nationwide for construction of a Fisher House. Constructed and donated to the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Department of Defense by the Fisher House Foundation, the Fisher House facilities offer the comforts of home to families and caregivers of veterans and service members receiving care at a VA medical center or military hospital.  Family members and caregiver may stay in a Fisher House at no cost to them so they can be at the bedside of their loved one during treatment for an illness or injury.  The 14 Fisher House sites will support access to care for thousands of veterans and their families traveling to VA facilities for treatment.  To date, the Fisher House Foundation has built and donated 31 Fisher Houses to the Department of Veterans Affairs, with an additional 16 in various stages of construction planning, and 40 Fisher Houses to the Department of Defense.  In 2016, Fisher Houses accommodated more than 23,000 families, saving guests more than $3 million in lodging expenses.
