The Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center hosted the groundbreaking of the Albuquerque Fisher House at 1501 San Pedro Dr. SE, Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Albuquerque Fisher House will provide a 'home away from home' at no cost for families and caregivers of Veterans and active duty military personnel receiving treatment at the New Mexico VA Medical Center. The 16-suite house will feature a common kitchen, laundry facility, spacious dining room and an inviting living room with a library and toys for children.
