A place of hope, community and healing.
The Fisher House at VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System is located on the University Drive campus, just steps away from one of the largest, most comprehensive VA medical centers in the country.
This 10-bedroom “home away from home” provides a place for visiting families to stay, free of charge, while their loved ones receive inpatient medical care at the nearby VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System.
The Pittsburgh Fisher House is professionally furnished and decorated to suit the tone and style of the Pittsburgh region. It features a common kitchen, laundry facilities, spacious dining room and an inviting living room with a library, and toys for children.
“Like the 57 Fisher Houses before, this house will provide a comfortable and safe haven for those families whose loved ones are being treated at VA Pittsburgh” ~ Ken Fisher, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Fisher House Foundation
Construction of this Fisher House was supported by the Department of Pennsylvania American Legion; Highmark Inc.; Alcoa Foundation; Bill O’Reilly and ‘The Factor’ viewers; the Iraq Afghanistan Deployment Impact Fund; Masco Corporation; and Newman’s Own Foundation.
