Cleveland VA Medical Center Need
The Louis Stokes Cleveland Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center is a referral center for ambulatory surgery, blind rehabilitation, polytrauma care, spinal cord injury, spinal cord injury nursing home, bariatric surgery, cardiac surgery, invasive cardiology, post-traumatic stress disorders, gambling disorders, substance abuse, women’s sexual trauma, comprehensive rehabilitation center, comprehensive cancer center, teleretinal imaging, and is a comprehensive reference clinical laboratory. Additionally, the Cleveland VAMC has an extensive research program with over $23M in funding annually. On average, there are over 520 veterans who are referred to Cleveland VA for specialty services each year.
The LSCVAMC has established a reputation as a premier, flagship VAMC. As a state, regional, and national referral center for a multitude of clinical services, there are many veterans and their families that travel to the Cleveland VAMC and require a place to be with their loved one during treatment. To accommodate this growing demand for on-site temporary lodging, a Fisher House is the perfect solution for the veterans and their families.
The Cleveland Fisher House will be a 16,000 square foot home with 21 suites and will accommodate up to 42 family members. The cost to build the Fisher House will total approximately $6 Million. The goal of the medical center is to fundraise $3 Million. After the medical center reaches this goal, the Fisher House Foundation will build the Cleveland Fisher House.
