VA Palo Alto Health Care System
The Defenders Lodge is a high-quality, warm and inviting environment, befitting our nation’s heroes. It is located next to the Fisher House, sharing a common garden area in between.
Patients undergoing extensive treatment or procedures, such as an organ transplant or chemotherapy, are eligible for temporary lodging for the duration of the episode of care.
Read the Defenders Lodge Guest Guide to find out if you are eligible.
Please note: Only service animals specifically trained to aid a person with disabilities are permitted at the Defenders Lodge. We require up-to-date immunization records for service animals.
