About STVHCS Fisher House and Fisher House Foundation
The STVHCS serves one of the largest primary care service areas in the nation providing health care services for 85,000 unique veterans. The rehabilitation center on the campus of the Audie L. Murphy Memorial Veterans Hospital in San Antonio, Texas is one of only five level one VA Polytrauma Rehabilitation Centers in the United States, performing a critical role in the recovery of our brave, wounded warriors and Veterans. STVHCS is home to one of only three bone marrow treatment units in the VA and also a spinal cord injury center. All of these inpatient programs serve large geographic populations that often require patients and families to receive treatment away from their homes and support systems.
The 16-suite STVHCS Fisher House in San Antonio provides lodging, completely free of charge, for patient’s families during their stay, playing a critical role in supporting our Veterans. There are 64 Fisher Houses nationwide and eight in San Antonio serving the South Texas area.
The Fisher House Foundation, a not-for-profit 501c3 organization, operates 64 Fisher Houses on 23 military installations and 24 VA Medical Centers nationwide. Since the Fisher House program began in 1990, it has offered more than five million days of lodging and saved more than 220,000 military and veterans’ families an estimated $235 million in out of pocket costs for lodging and transportation.
