The Hospital Guest House of Southern Appalachia opened its doors on the grounds of the James H. Quillen VA Medical Center in 1986 and provides lodging to those who have a patient in any local medical facility. Compassionate Volunteers contribute their time and effort to provide this service to those who are away from home and in stressful situations.
"I expect to pass through life but once. If, therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do for any fellow being,
let me do it now...
as I shall not pass this way again."
-William Penn (1644 - 1718)
