Fussell House offers residential accommodation for veterans (and their nominated support persons/families) receiving care at the National Centre for Veterans' Healthcare.
Fussell House is located at Concord Hospital and is managed by the hospital and NCVH staff.
Veterans who are referred for treatment at NCVH from regional areas or interstate are eligible to access the accommodation at Fussell House.
Fussell House was funded by a $6.7 million contribution from the Commonwealth Government and features 19 rooms (single, twin and family rooms) with common living, kitchen, dining and laundry spaces and an outdoor area for the exclusive use of Fussell House residents.
Fussell House is designed as a safe space for veterans and their families to stay together and share experiences in a friendly and relaxed environment while receiving support and treatment from the specialist health professionals at Concord Hospital.
Construction is now complete with the accommodation now able to welcome veterans within COVID safe limits.
Fussell House was named after Lieutenant Michael Fussell, who was killed in action by an Improvised Explosive Device while serving with the Special Operations Task Group in Afghanistan in 2008.
Michael's family is proud and honoured that his memory will be associated with the support provided to veterans and their families through Fussell House.
