Fisher House opens in Augusta

AUGUSTA, GA (WTOC) - On Oct. 5, the Dept. of Veteran Affairs opened the Fisher House on the campus of the Charlie Norwood Medical Center in Augusta.

When Veterans are hospitalized, their families will now have a comfortable place to stay free of charge right next to the hospital. The dedication marks an addition to an already booming foundation.

Five families have already moved into the Augusta Fisher House.
