Eastern Nebraska Veterans Home

Situated on 20 acres near 40th Street and Capehart Road in Bellevue, the new 120-bed veterans’ home is a modern replacement for the Thomas Fitzgerald Veterans’ Home in Omaha which was opened in 1980 in the former Douglas County Hospital Annex.

The Home covers nearly 118,000 sq. feet and has four separate wings.

The Home is designed to serve members in four areas: assisted living, intermediate care, skilled care, and Alzheimer’s care. Each area serves 30 members and has its own exterior courtyard designed to serve different mobility levels of the members.

The Governor credited efforts by the public and private sector for helping the new veterans’ home project reach the construction phase. The City of Bellevue donated the land to the state and the Sarpy County Board of Commissioners donated $300,000 to build an access road to the site.
