|Fort Campbell Fisher House|
|What is it? |
... a temporary "home away from home" where families can be close to a military loved one receiving medical treatment at Blanchfield Army Community Hospital (and other local healthcare partners) for a serious illness or injury.
We provide a comfortable, beautifully decorated, accessible home, for up to eight families at minimal costs* to our guests. Entering through the front door, you will find nice wide halls, a cozy library and ample dining room. The library is equipped with a gas fireplace, lots of books, comfy furniture, games, and a computer workstation. The dining room offers seating for twenty and includes a high chair. Our dream kitchen is open to the family room and boasts two ovens, two stoves, two microwaves, and a dishwasher. Our cabinets are well-stocked with supplies including pots & pans, small appliances, dishes, utensils and groceries! Storage is provided in the large center island for those that wish to provide their own groceries. Just off the kitchen is a laundry room and pantry equipped with two washers and dryers and all laundry supplies. The family room boasts a 55" TV, xBox, Wii, DVD player and plenty of games, movies and toys. Just outside is the patio with gas & charcoal grills and a private playground.
Families are provided one of our eight guest suites. Suites have a queen bed, a pair of double beds or a pair of twin beds. Other amenities include a dresser, chair, desk, phone, TV, DVD player, iron, extra linens, & free WiFi! Each room also has a private, accessible bathroom with hairdryer and a full assortment of toiletries. To see pictures of our home, view our photo album on Facebook.
For those that wish to get some exercise during their stay, there is a mile-long rubberized track around the hospital with workout stations scattered along the way.
If you don't have a car while here, no worries, many on post facilities are within walking distance - PX, commissary, theater, library, pool (indoor & outdoor), bowling alley, post office, banking, etc...
*Currently the lodging fee at Army Fisher Houses is just $10/night, however, the Fisher House Foundation is covering this cost for our guest families!
Campbell sits on the stateline near Hopkinsville, Ky and Clarksville, Tn.
There is easy access to the installation just off Interstate 24 exit 86. Take Hwy
If you have a military ID, you may come in at Gate 3 when open, continue through the light and we'll be straight ahead on your right at the main hospital entrance on Air Assault Street.
It's just a short walk across the parking lot to the hospital, making it easy to visit your loved one or get to your appointments without having to travel on & off post.
**Although you may have been approved to stay at Fisher House, your entry onto the installation isn't guaranteed and is out of our control. To ensure you have the most up-to-date list of documents required to bring with you to request a Visitor's Pass, we encourage everyone without a Dept of Defense ID card to contact the Visitor Control Center (VCC) at 270-798-5047 PRIOR to travelling.
