GETTING A ROOM

A completed Referral Form needs to be submitted to the Fisher House Manager, preferably by a hospital staff member or the chain of command, to confirm the medical need. Self-referrals will be accepted, however, will take longer to approve while we confirm the medical need for services. For scheduled procedures, please do not submit a Referral more than 2 weeks in advance.

Check-ins are permitted Mon-Fri 9:30 - 4:30, except holidays. If guests are not able arrive during these hours, an after-hours check-in may be pre-arranged, however, no check-ins will be permitted after 9pm. This is a courtesy to our other houseguests and in compliance with quiet hours.

We do not make reservations, but we will try to confirm availability up to 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... If our house is full, and you've been approved for a stay, we will do our best to assist you in getting lodging in the local area at little or no cost until a room opens up in the Fisher House. Our policy is one room per patient family. Room types available include: Queen suite - 1 queen bed, sleeps 3 with extra person on recliner, twin airbed or portacrib; Double suite - 2 full beds, sleeps 4 (5 if small kids); Twin suite - 2 twin beds, sleeps 3 with extra person on recliner, twin airbed or portacrib. Unfortunately, we do not have any adjoining rooms to accommodate larger families.

COST

Currently, there is no cost to the family for a stay at the Fisher House. Lodging fees are paid by 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!
