The campus of the Central Nebraska Veterans Home is comprised of 11 buildings on a 67-acre site in northeast Kearney. The Veteran’s Home Center (VHC) is the main building at 75,000 square feet and features facilities administration, food service, clinic, wood shop, craft area, chapel, and large group gathering spaces. On each side of the VHC is a HUB building at 13,000 square feet each, which primarily supports physical therapy needs. Six neighborhood buildings ranging from 34,000-38,000 square feet are the living quarters for the Members (Veterans). Each neighborhood has three homes and has 12-15 Member bedrooms for a total of 225 units.
Each neighborhood and home is designed for specific care type models to meet the various needs of all Members. Memory Care (or Dementia Care), Medically Complex, Long Term Care, Palliative Care, Independent Living (or Domiciliary Care) as well as Assisted Living Care is provided throughout the facility. Special attention to the operational aspects of the home-like design was thoroughly examined and addressed as the design of the space came together.
