CHEROKEE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – A new nursing home for veterans will open in 2021 in Cherokee County thanks to a funding grant from the United States Veterans Administration., according to South Carolina Senate President Harvey Peeler.

The announcement from the S.C. Department of Mental Health says construction is expected to be complete by spring of 2021 with the facility ready for occupancy later that summer.

“It is welcome news for our veterans and their families,” Peeler said.

“We have been working closely with the SC Department of Mental Health and the US Department of Veterans Affairs. With their assistance and the assistance of our county and city, this nursing home will become a reality.”

The roughly $40 million facility will be located on 35 acres off Hampshire Drive and have 108 beds.
