VETERANS AFFAIRS

 

VETERANS NURSING HOME UPDATE – Having celebrated the Ground Breaking Ceremony on December 1st, we will soon be entering the Construction Phase of the project. Along with the expectations of what this will mean for the Veteran Community of Southern Utah, came the questions and concerns about how Veterans will be able to avail themselves of the services provided by the Home, about possible employment opportunities and the status of the room upgrade fundraising. The Veterans Coalition of Southern Utah, after consulting with all the powers to be, can now provide the following answers.

APPLYING FOR RESIDENCE – Prior to accepting application forms, the Utah Department of Veterans Affairs is compiling a WAITING LIST for those Veterans intending to apply for residency. To be considered, a Veteran must first be enrolled in the VA System and provide the following information: VETERANS NAME; BRANCH AND DATES OF SERVICE; ADDRESSES (POSTAL & E-MAIL); TELEPHONE NUMBERS; NAME AND TELEPHONE NUMBERS OF CONTACT PERSON; AND DISABILITY PERCENTAGE (IF ANY) AS ASSIGNED BY THE VA . Forward the information to: MS. TONJA KNIGHT, IVINS WAITING LIST, UTAH DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS, 550 FOOTHILL DRIVE, SUITE 202, SALT LAKE CITY, UT 84113 or at tcknight@utah.gov, or at (801) 326-2371.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES – While the hiring process will be conducted by the Firm awarded the contract to operate the Home, Project Management has volunteered to receive resumes from interested parties.  Send resumes  to:

EMPLOYMENT, IVINS VETERANS NURSING HOME, UTAH DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS, 550 FOOTHILL DRIVE, SUITE 202, SALT LAKE CITY, UT 84113.

ROOM UPGRADE FUND RAISING – Thus far, the fund raising effort has produced slightly more than 50% of the $432,000 goal. The closer we come to  actual construction, the less time remains for us to accomplish our goal. Send your donation, indicating Ivins Veterans Nursing Home on the memo line of your check to;

UDVA, DONATION ACCOUNT, 550 FOOTHILL DRIVE, SUITE 202, SALT LAKE CITY, UT 84113. A LETTER OF ACKNOWLEDGEMENT WILL BE SENT TO ALL DONORS AS PROOF OF RECEIPT FOR TAX PURPOSES.  For more information, call (801) 326-1834
