​​​​Veterans Care Center

The Virginia ​Department of Veterans Services plans to build a 120 bed, 141,000 square foot facility in the Princess Anne Commons corridor focusing on veterans care.  The center will provide skilled nursing, Alzheimer's/memory care, and short term rehabilitation services.  Groundbreaking on the facility is expected to take place in October 2017, with a planned grand opening in late 2019.  The City of Virginia Beach will extend Nimmo Parkway to allow access to the facility.
