About The Fisher House
Samuel S. Stratton Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center at Albany is proud to support The Zachary & Elizabeth Fisher House for patients and their families. Fisher House is a home-away-from-home for families of hospitalized veterans or veterans who are in the area to visit a hospitalized member of their immediate family. Also welcome to stay at the Fisher House are veterans, undergoing an extended episode of outpatient therapy, who are able to care for their own personal needs or are accompanied by a caretaker. House features include accommodations, common rooms, fully stocked kitchen, laundry facilities, and more.
The first Zachary and Elizabeth Fisher House was built at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland in 1991. Mr. Fisher hired his own architect, builder, and interior designer. After the houses are completed the Fishers turn ownership over to the respective Services or the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Fishers receive so much joy from the houses that more are being planned. Since the program’s inception, more than 65,000 families have stayed in Fisher House.
