Dr. Peter “Pete” Killcommons has served as the chief executive officer of the medical software and device company Medweb. Under his guidance, Medweb has developed comprehensive disaster response and organized philanthropic initiatives. Dr. Peter Killcommons also personally contributes to multiples charitable nonprofits including the Fisher House Foundation.

The Fisher House Foundation is dedicated to providing free temporary lodging for families of active military personnel and military veterans who are being regionally treated for one or more medical conditions. The organization works through a network of 70 affiliated Fisher Houses that are located in or near military bases and VA medical centers.

The Fisher House Foundation also supports the military through auxiliary philanthropic programs such as Hotels for Heroes. Hotels for Heroes helps pay for hotel rooms for family members who do not find lodging in an official Fisher House. The program works through seven of America’s largest hotel chains to encourage hotel rewards members to donate their points to worthy recipients.
