The New York State Veterans Home at Oxford is a replacement, 242-bed skilled nursing facility operated by the New York State Department of Health. The existing nursing home was built in the 1970s and offers long-term care for veterans. Facing serious code compliance issues, the Department of Health and the Department of Veterans’ Affairs funded the development of a new state-of-the-art facility.

In 2004, Kideney Architects was retained to prepare a schematic design for the 219,000 SF replacement facility. Kideney’s design is intended to be a prototype for future Veterans’ Homes, providing a residential atmosphere for its inhabitants within an efficient and accessible operational layout specifically designed to help reduce staff injuries.

A 32-bed Special Care wing, designed for residents with Dementia, has direct access to a protected exterior environment. Nurses’ stations are strategically located for resident supervision. “On-unit” dining facilities with pantries allow decentralized food service, providing a more home-like atmosphere.

Construction is scheduled for completion in 2007.
