Iowa Veterans Home Showcases Improvements

The Iowa Veteran’s Home will be holding an Open House to showcase renovations to the Dack Nursing building followed by guided tours on Tuesday, July 26, 2016 in the Malloy LRC. The program will begin at 10:00 am. Tours will be available from approximately 10:30 – 12:30 pm. IVH Commandant, Jodi Tymeson, along with VA Central Iowa Health Care System Chief of Staff Dr. Jerry Blow, will provide remarks during the ceremony. Dack renovations were completed in July of 2016. The public is invited and encouraged to attend. The Iowa Veterans Home currently provides licensed long-term nursing care to 542 veterans or spouses. IVH also provides residential level of care for 95 veterans or spouses. The Dack building will house 87 residents with both single rooms and couple suites for long-term nursing care. The single rooms and couple suites will include private bathrooms and shower and are much larger than the rooms the residents previously occupied with three times the closet space.
