Veteran’s Nursing Home Bill Signed by S.D. Governor
Sat March 27, 2010 - Midwest Edition Construction Equipment Guide
PIERRE, S.D. (AP) Gov. Mike Rounds has signed into law a measure allowing construction of a nursing home for military veterans in eastern South Dakota.
The nursing home, with 50 beds, would be built by the federal government and a private company that would run the facility. The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs would pay 65 percent of construction costs.
The only care facility for military veterans and their spouses is in the southwest corner of the state at Hot Springs, where the Veterans Home has 52 nursing beds and 100 assisted living beds.
The proposed new home would help meet the needs of veterans in eastern South Dakota.
The bill was needed to create an exception to a 1988 law that banned new construction of nursing home beds.
