Serving those who served

New York State Veterans Homes are skilled nursing facilities owned and operated by the New York State Department of Health for veterans and their dependents.

We provide quality care to all eligible veterans and their eligible dependents in need of skilled nursing care and rehabilitative services. We also conduct geriatric research and provide education and training for health care professionals.

The Department of Health operates four Veterans Homes, located in Batavia, Oxford, Montrose and St. Albans (Queens), New York. (State University of New York (SUNY) operates a fifth Veterans Home in Long Island, New York)

"It’s like a second home for me.  It’s great.  We have a room to ourselves, so we can take care of ourselves.  If I can’t be home, this is the place for me to be." - Ron Buckler, Vietnam Conflict Navy Veteran

"It’s a fantastic place to live, I’m very happy here.  I’m always in a good mood because people are always friendly to me.  If I have a need or want, all I have to do is mention it, and I get it in a short time.  I haven’t had a bad meal since I’ve been here.  The food is always good, I’ve already gained 14 pounds since I came here." - Thomas Contrera, Vietnam Conflict Army Veteran
