About Us

Army Fisher Houses Medi-Teddy

Who is Medi-Teddy?

MEDI-TEDDY, the official mascot of the Army Fisher House Program, represents the comfort, caring and compassion provided at each Fisher House. MEDI-TEDDY is given to children who come to the Fisher House with little more then their clothes. For these children MEDI-TEDDY becomes a much-needed friend and helps them deal with the stress of relocating from their home.

Army Fisher Houses Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Fisher House?

Army Fisher Houses are comfortable, temporary homes filled with warm, caring people who help you and your family endure the stresses associated with a loved one’s serious medical condition. Families stay for free. The nightly service fee is being underwritten by the Fisher House Foundation. Who is eligible to stay in an Army Fisher House?

Any family member of an active duty or retired service member who is being treated at the military hospital. In some locations, outpatients may also stay in the Fisher House.

Can I make reservations?

Unfortunately, due to the small number of rooms available in Army Fisher Houses, we are unable to take reservations. However, we encourage you to call the Fisher House Manager and inquire about the projected availability of rooms for a specific time period.

Does the Army provide the funding for Army Fisher Houses?

The Army provides NO FINANCIAL SUPPORT for Army Fisher Houses. The funding for the operations and maintenance of Army Fisher Houses comes primarily from two sources: service charges ($10 per family-night) and charitable contributions.

If I want to make a donation to Army Fisher Houses, how do I do it?

It was an honor to be the first guest at the new Fisher House. I was treated like family by Christine and all of the staff. It was a blessing to be cared for and have a beautiful place to stay, while my son was having surgery at Madigan Hospital.

Fisher House is an amazing place that opens their hearts to families in need of their services. I am truly grateful for your help.

I can’t thank you all enough for being there for me and my son!

 

Sincerely,

Sharon and Dylan C.
