Nevada State Veterans Home

Our Mission

We are “Caring for Nevada’s Heroes"

Our Vision

We are dedicated to serving Nevada’s veterans who have earned special recognition through their sacrifices in protecting our Country’s freedoms and individual rights. Mindful that respect of the individual encompasses the unique needs of each veteran we serve on a daily basis, we honor them by providing the very best care and advocacy. We achieve this by our innovative delivery of services, our skilled and compassionate staff and volunteers, and our commitment to make all residents and their families feel like members of the Nevada State Veterans Home.

From The Administrator

As the Administrator of the Nevada State Veterans Home (NSVH), I welcome you on behalf of our team members, volunteers, and residents, and welcome you to the NSVH Website.

We hope to convey to you how special our Veterans Home is, primarily because of our Team’s dedication to our mission. As a team, we all share the responsibility of “Caring for Nevada’s Heroes" and we take that responsibility very seriously. We recognize that, as the only State Veterans Home in Nevada, we are unique. We are not governed by a corporate board of directors demanding profits – we are about providing quality nursing care to Nevada’s heroes – our veterans, and we are proud to do just that!

  • For five years in a row (2012, 2013, 2015, 2016, and 2017), NSVH has received the HealthInsight Quality Award for excellence and exceptional quality care. This award recognizes nursing homes for exceeding and excelling in a number of quality care measures. According to HealthInsight, only five Nevada nursing homes received the award this year.
  • NSVH maintains a 5-star rating by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), the highest rating possible.
  • NSVH received a deficiency-free rating during its annual VA survey conducted May 16-18, 2017. Receiving a deficiency-free rating is rare as the rigorous VA survey occurs unannounced and it reviews, as well as measures, 158 standards. The survey report found NSVH was in compliance with all 158 standards and was granted full certification with this distinction for 2017.
  • On April 26, 2017, the NSVH Administrator, Linda Gelinger, was honored at the American College of Health Care Administrators for the Eli Pick Facility Leadership award.
  • Two staff members of NSVH received recognition in the Endeavor Awards Program of the Perry Foundation – Corrine Watson, RN, received “Nurse Leader of the Year”, and Sally Gray, RN, received “ Distinguished Nurse Educator of the Year” for all southern Nevada skilled nursing facilities.
  • NSVH continues to maintain high rankings, in the top 95th percentile, in the Pinnacle Customer Experience program.
  • NSVH obtained certification in the Music and Memory program. Music and Memory is a national study that is grant funded through the Perry Foundation. The Program will initially provide iPods and music for a limited number of residents.
  • NSVH received the Eli Pick Facility Leadership Award on April 4, 2017. Fewer than 9% of the facilities nationwide qualify.
