MountainCare's Rathbun House Opened in 1994, the Rathbun House provides a home-like environment for families and caregivers accompanying a patient receiving medical care or treatment at Mission Hospital, CarePartners or the VA Hospital. The Rathbun House is the only hospitality house in western North Carolina and is a service of MountainCare, a not-for-profit organization that exists only through the generous financial help from donors. Admission to the Rathbun House is by referral only. To start the process, contact your hospital-based case manager, social worker, discharge planner or nurse navigator and they will complete the referral form. The Rathbun House is situated on 17 wooded acres within five blocks of Mission Hospital and two miles from CarePartners Rehabilitation Hospital. It is located at 121 Sherwood Road, Asheville, NC 28803. To contact the Rathbun House, please call 828-251-0595.
