Northern Nevada State Veterans Home (Sparks)


Quality Care and Just Like Home

The design and concept of the Northern Nevada State Veterans Home (NNSVH) is like no other. While it offers the highest level of skilled care, it will never feel like a hospital or institution. The 102,000 square foot facility has 96 beds and features a host of amenities. Veterans have their own private room and share a den, living room and kitchen with 15 other residents.

A “Town Hall" has 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" serves as a gathering place, hub and heart for area Veteran Service Organizations and other Veteran Support or Advocacy groups. 

NNSVH is overseen by the Nevada Department of Veterans Services and managed by Avalon Health Care Management.

  • Type of Care Provided – Short-term rehabilitation, long-term care, memory care.
  • Long Term Care – Assistance with daily living, showering, dressing, meals, personal care.
  • Short-Term Care – Typically follows a hospital stay and may involve Physical, Occupational or Speech Therapy.

Fulfills a Promise and a Great Need

There are an estimated 80,000 veterans living in northern Nevada. This facility allows veterans in need of skilled nursing care to stay closer to home, near their family, friends, community, when they need it most.
