The Pennsylvania Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA; Annville, Pa.) and the Pennsylvania Department of General Services (Harrisburg, Pa.) broke ground on a $97 million long-term skilled nursing and memory care community for veterans at the Hollidaysburg Veterans’ Home (HVH) campus in Duncansville, Pa., according to the website governor.pa.gov.
The 200-bed community will be located on the HVH campus at the site of a former administration building, which was demolished in 2019. [edit correct? the building was demolished, not the campus, right?]
The three-story, 161,000-square-foot building will offer single and double-occupancy rooms and dining rooms on each unit. Additional spaces will include a kitchen, community room, chapel, activity room, therapy space, pharmacy, canteen, library, and barber/beauty shop.
The Department of General Services’ Capital Construction Services Division (Washington, D.C.) will lead the project’s planning, design, procurement, and construction. It is slated to be completed in 2025.
The HVH is one of six veterans’ homes operated by the DMVA. (For a VA healthcare projects roundup, go here.)
