RALEIGH – The Department of Military and Veterans Affairs held a groundbreaking event for a new veterans home in Kernersville on Dec. 12, 2019. This is the fifth world-class nursing home facility in the state.
The new home will have 120 private rooms, all with skilled nursing care. The 120-bed facility will also include a Memory Care unit for residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s.
This project is expected to cost in excess of $50 million and is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2021. This facility will generate approximately 200 new jobs in the surrounding area.
N.C. Department of Military and Veterans Affairs Secretary Larry D. Hall stated, “The North Carolina Department of Military and Veterans Affairs continues to strive in making our state the most military – and veteran-friendly in the nation. Our state veterans homes are consistently ranked among the best in the nation, and we are excited to expand the program and provide even more support for families who have already given so much to defend our freedom.”
The new nursing home is a cooperative effort between the State of North Carolina and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, which provided over $27 million in grant funds for the project.
