GETTING A ROOM
A Referral Form should be completed and submitted by the treating physician/surgeon or a member of the medical team, hospital social work, or case manager. Self referrals are only accepted from prior guests.
Check-ins are scheduled/arranged during regular business hours - Mon-Fri 9:00 - 4:00 (we are closed weekends and holidays).
A referral is not a reservation! We always recommend that families be prepared to make other arrangements as rooms are not guaranteed until the day prior to check in. 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 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. Additional rooms may be permitted for special circumstances.
Currently, there is no cost to the family for a stay at the Fisher House, thanks to Fisher House Foundation. Everything provided to the families while staying at the Fort Campbell Fisher House is made possible by our generous supporters in the Fort Campbell community!
We provide the families of our patients with a comfortable stay in a home environment. Please understand that we are not a medical facility, nursing home, or hospice center and no medical treatment may be performed in the house, except that which is self administered. In order to elminate infectious risks to all our guests, some patients, and anyone currently ill or contagious, will be excluded from staying at the Fisher House.
Additionally, the Fisher House cannot be used for leisure visits, as a safe house, homeless shelter, or as transient housing for PCS, ETS, and retirement.
Adherence to the house rules will ensure a safe and peaceful experience for all Fisher House residents. Any resident who refuses to comply with the house rules or live in harmony with other residents, will be asked to find other accomodations.
Family members are responsible for abiding by all house rules & policies and ensuring their guests do the same. A responsible party is required to sign our Resident's Agreement upon check-in.
Some of our house rules are:
Staying at Fisher House is a privilege!
