Officials in Tennessee broke ground on a $47 million state veterans nursing home in a ceremony in Cleveland, Tenn., the Associated Press reported Aug. 22.
The 108-bed skilled nursing facility will include six 18-bedroom residential houses linked by interior shared support spaces.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is contributing a $30.5 million grant, while Bradley County and the city each chipped in $2 million. The state of Tennessee added $10 million, and an anonymous donation of $3 million was pledged in 2006 — three years after the county and the Cleveland City Council passed resolutions in support of a nursing facility for the long-term care of veterans.
