Amenities for Visitors


The Rathbun House provides housing as well as kitchen and laundry facilities for patients’ families and patients living outside of Buncombe County. This unique facility is available only by referral from a hospital physician, social worker or chaplain. Though there is no charge, the center is funded through donations, so we encourage donations from our guests.
