Southwest Montana Veterans Home (SWMVH)

The Southwest Montana Veterans Home (SWMVH), located in Butte Montana, is currently under construction and scheduled for completion in Spring of 2021 and first admissions starting in March 2021.

The Veterans Home is a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) and will be home to 60 residents.  There are currently five cottages with 12-bedrooms and a footprint for a sixth if funding becomes available in the future.  Each cottage is designed to very “homelike” with private bedrooms and bathrooms, a central kitchen, dining and living rooms, and a spa/bath room.  The heart of the “neighborhood” is the Community Center with a large multi-purpose room, barber/beauty shop, physical therapy, reception area, medical exam room, and administrative offices.

The Don Harrington family generously donated the beautiful 10-acre plot at the foot of the Continental Divide under the watchful eye of the “Lady of the Rockies” and has beautiful views of the Highland Mountain range.

More information and photos will be available as the project continues.

Additional Information:

To be eligible for admission a person must be an honorably discharged veteran or the spouse or surviving spouse of a veteran who served in the armed forces of the United States, along with an order from a physician stating that nursing home care is required.  Spouses of veterans will be admitted on a space-available basis. A veteran and spouse may be admitted together if they both qualify for nursing-home care. SWMVH has an open admission policy regardless of race, color, creed, age, national origin, medical diagnosis or handicap. 

Residents pay based on their ability. The Veterans' Administration contributes toward the cost of care for each veteran; spouses do not qualify for this benefit. Cost per day is less than what is charged in most private or nonprofit nursing homes.  

Eduro Healthcare is the Operations Contractor for the Southwest Montana Veterans Home. They are currently taking applications for various positions at the Southwest Montana Veterans Home.
