CDPH approves skilled nursing at Redding Veterans Home

REDDING, Calif. – The California Department of Public Health has given the seal of approval to the Veterans Home of California in Redding to operate as a skilled nursing facility.  

Decisions for this approval came down today when the CDPH Survey team completed their initial survey and unanimously passed the veterans home with zero deficiencies in all areas of the skilled nursing facility.

CDPH is dedicated to optimizing the health and well-being of the people in California and that extends to all veterans in each of the eight veteran homes operated by CalVet.

The CDPH instrumentally reviewed all policies and procedures of the skilled nursing facility and has determined the full ability to care for veterans in the home.  

This was a systematic and comprehensive evaluation of which the veterans home passed every area of review.  

All departments including plant operations, dietary and clinical divisions were inspected and approved which allows the veterans home to begin admitting veterans that are in need of the skilled nursing facility.

“This was no easy effort given the startup nature of the home,” said CalVet Secretary Peter Gravett, “The dedication to serving veterans has gone rewarded.”

The Veterans Home of California-Redding will now begin admitting and serving veterans immediately.  

The first resident of the skilled nursing facility will be an Army/Air Force World War II prisoner of war and veteran who will move in on Monday, June 23.

 For those interested in applying for residency at the veterans home, please make an appointment with our admissions teams by calling 530-224-3300.  

Application for residency and more information on the Redding home are available at https://www.calvet.ca.gov/VetHomes/Pages/Redding.aspx .
