The New York State Veterans’ Home has been in operation since 1896. In November 2009, we moved into our new 242 bed “State of the Art” facility which is operated by the New York State Department of Health for veterans and their dependents. It is located in beautiful Central New York State on a rural 60-acre site, with spectacular views of valleys, hills, fields and the Chenango River. The facility has several academic affiliations including the Upstate Medical University Clinical Campus at Binghamton.
We provide skilled nursing services to our residents around the clock, & all delivered by our compassionate team of nurses. Our nursing department mission is to service our Veterans & their dependents with the most current services & equipment.
