The Minneapolis VA Medical Center will officially open Fisher House II, a new 20-room facility designed to be a “home away from home” for families of veterans receiving care at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center. Each family gets a private room and access to a shared kitchen and living area.
Here’s a story I did on the project.
The dedication ceremony will be Thursday, June 9th at 10 a.m. at east 54th Avenue and Minnehaha, across from the VA.
Speakers will include Robert Petzel, VA Undersecretary of Health; Tom McDonough, Chair of the Bryan McDonough Military Heroes Foundation; Steve Kleinglass, Director of the Minneapolis VA Health Care System; Janet Murphy, Director of the VA Midwest Health Care Network; and Ken Fisher, Chairman of the Fisher House Foundation, Inc. Also attending will be about 400 veterans, families, and VA staff.
Parking near the Fisher House is limited. There will be reserved parking in Lot 11 on the Minneapolis VA Medical Center grounds. Look for signage on East 54th Avenue.
