The Rathbun House is a hospitality house owned and operated by Mission Hospital. This house provides lodging and a supportive, home-like environment for patients and their families coming to Asheville for medical treatment. With an annual occupancy rate of 95%, Mission provides the staffing support needed to operate the Rathbun House. Volunteers also support the home by staffing the front desk. As the need of these services increases, philanthropic support is a necessity.
