Northern Nevada State Veterans Home
The new Northern Nevada State Veterans Home is a 102,000-square-foot-facility which will serve Nevada’s military service men and women with skilled nursing, memory care, and a welcoming, caring environment. Designed to be a community living center instead of a traditional hospital-style facility, the state-of-the-art home will have 96 beds, a house-like environment and special amenities you won’t find in a regular nursing home. It will feature a fun and lively town center with a dining hall, conservatory, beauty/barber shop, store, coffee shop, physical therapy, chapel and parade grounds to host veterans’ events. There will be administrative offices, nursing offices and other support operations as well.
Currently the only veterans home in Nevada is several hours away. The new facility, located in Sparks and scheduled to open at the end of 2018, is needed to serve the estimated number of 80,000 veterans in Northern Nevada.
Q&D is excited to be the CMAR and builder for this project. The project broke ground on July 17, 2017. Governor Sandoval attended the event, personally shoveling some ceremonial dirt to celebrate.
“Nevada is home to nearly 300,000 veterans, and we are a state where your service is honored,” stated Sandoval in his prepared remarks. “That is why you have my full commitment that I will continue to do everything within my power to ensure Nevada is the most military- and veteran-friendly state in the nation. Across the state, Nevadans have responded to this call and today we take an important step in cementing that legacy. It is here we will take care of some of our aging heroes and provide care to those who dedicated their lives to serving our country. I am honored and humbled to join you today and I offer my sincere gratitude to the many individuals who worked tirelessly to make this day possible.”
