It is an honor and privilege to provide high-quality care to our nation's veterans, each and every day. As a member of the PruittHealth family of providers, we strive to deliver the same level of integrity and commitment that our veterans experienced and demonstrated while in service. We are certified by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, and we work in conjunction with the Department of Veterans Services to provide comprehensive, 24-hour care to aged and infirm veterans. Our services are provided under spacious accommodations in accordance with quality forms of care, such as skilled nursing, medical, dental, psychological, and therapeutic needs.
