The new home is now under construction!
The ribbon-cutting ceremony is set for December 2018! As Governor Brian Sandoval said during the July 17, 2017 Groundbreaking Ceremony at the home’s location in Sparks, Nevada; “We’re going from “sagebrush to service" in just 18 months!"

Quality Care and Just Like Home
The design and concept of the Northern Nevada State Veterans Home is like no other. While it will offer the highest level of skilled care, it will never feel like a hospital or institution. When it’s complete, the 102,000 square foot facility will have 96 beds and feature a host of amenities. Veterans will have their own private room and share a den, living room and kitchen with 15 other residents.
A “Town Hall" will have a restaurant, coffee bistro, sports bar, therapy gym, beauty/barber shop, general commissary store as well as parade grounds for military and patriotic ceremonies. Additionally, the “Town Hall" will serve as a gathering place, hub and heart for area Veteran Service Organizations and other Veteran Support or Advocacy groups.
Fulfills a Promise and a Great Need
There are an estimated 80,000 veterans living in northern Nevada. This new facility will allow veterans in need of this type of care to stay closer to home, near their family, friends, community. Currently, many northern Nevada veterans are being sent out of state, including Utah and California to received skilled care. This takes them away from the support they need, when they need it most.
