Cardinal Health has a rich history of support for our nation’s military veterans – our company, our employees and our customers are passionate about supporting those who have bravely served America and protected our freedom. After raising almost $315,000 at RBC 2016 in Chicago, we are proud to announce our charitable initiatives at RBC 2017 will once again benefit the Fisher House Foundation.
A Fisher House is “a home away from home” for families of patients receiving medical care at major military and VA medical centers. The homes are normally located within walking distance of the treatment facility or have transportation available. There are 70 Fisher Houses located on 24 military installations and 28 VA medical centers. Many more houses are under construction or in design. The network now serves more than 27,000 families each year, providing the vital opportunity to be at a loved one’s side at the most desperate time in one’s life. Since the program began in 1990, Fisher Houses have saved families more than $310 million in lodging and transportation costs. On any given night, more than 935 families could be staying at a Fisher House.
