Entry Description

STATEHOUSE (April 16, 2013) — State Sen. Brandt Hershman (R-Buck Creek) announced today that the State Budget Committee, on which he serves, approved a $5.7 million project to renovate the Indiana Veterans’ Home.


The funding will be used to fully renovate three patient care floors in the West Lafayette facility’s MacArthur Hall, which was built in 1982. Planned upgrades include the installation of new telephone, resident call light, roam monitoring and Electronic Medical Records systems.


“Nationally, many veterans programs are dealing with budget cuts,” Hershman said. “Indiana’s fiscal responsibility means we’re in a position to better fund care for these men and women who sacrifice so much in the defense of our country. The Indiana Veterans’ Home is vital to so many Hoosiers and their families, and I’m happy to see it will receive the financial support it needs.”


As the only veterans’ home in the state, the Indiana Veterans’ Home provides both long-term and short-term care to approximately 200 veterans and spouses of veterans. This includes 24-hour care for residents with more serious illnesses and disabilities.
