ELIGIBILITY

We serve patients and their families1 while actively receiving medical care at BACH for serious injuries, wounds, and illnesses (other local hospitals on space available basis). Eligible Fisher House guests are:

  • immediate family members of in-patients (spouse, children, parents - including step and “in loco-parentis”, siblings)

  • extended family members of in-patients (grandparents, in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins) when immediate family is not already occupying a room

  • reside more than 50 miles from the hospital

  • medically and mentally stable and able to care for themselves and/or their family members

  • out-patient stays are on a case by case basis (patient and guest safety is a top priority)

  • 1Patient must have a military connection - active duty, retiree, dependent, or VA eligible veteran

GETTING A ROOM

A Referral Form should be completed and submitted by hospital staff (a member of the treating medical team, case manager, social work or chaplain). All requests from WTB assigned service members must receive initial approval from the company command team. Self referrals can be accepted, however, approval for a stay cannot be granted until verified by hospital staff.

PDF Referral Form

Check-ins are done during regular business hours - Mon-Fri 9:00 - 4:00 (we are closed weekends and holidays). If guests are not able arrive during business hours, an after-hours check-in must be pre-arranged, however, no check-ins will be scheduled after 9pm. This is a courtesy to our other houseguests and in compliance with quiet hours.

We do not make reservations! If approved for a room, we are not able to confirm a room is available more than 48hrs in advance of your arrival. When we have more referrals than rooms, we prioritize on many factors, including medical severity, projected length of stay, financial need, etc... When the Fisher House is full, we will maintain a waiting list. Our policy is one room per patient family. Room types available include: Queen room - 1 queen bed, sleeps 3 with extra person on recliner, twin airbed or portacrib; Double Room - 2 full beds, sleeps 4; Twin Room - 2 twin beds, sleeps 3 with extra person on recliner, twin airbed or portacrib.

Currently, there is no cost to the family for a stay at the Fisher House. Lodging fees are covered through a grant from the Fisher House Foundation. Everything provided to the families while staying at the Fort Campbell Fisher House is made possible by our generous donors in the Fort Campbell community!

OUR LIMITATIONS

We provide the families of our patients with a comfortable stay in a home environment.
