State Veterans Home

Thank for you taking the time to

inquire about the New Mexico State Veterans’ Home (NMSVH), New Mexico’s only nursing facility for our country’s veterans.

We are proud to serve those that have served us. We welcome your inquiries and encourage you to visit us anytime.

Centrally located in southwestern New Mexico, half way between Albuquerque and El Paso. Nestled in the Rio Grande Valley, we are situated on 12 beautifully landscaped acres, overlooking one of the southwest’s outstanding retirement communities.

Mission Statement

The NMSVH strives to provide integrated services in an atmosphere that promotes the physical, social and emotional well-being of every resident. Every effort is made to continuously improve care while safely assisting residents to live as independently as possible and as they choose, thereby assuring dignity and respect at all times.

We will make an individual and team commitment to demonstrate professionalism and pride in all our actions, maintaining an environment of accountability and responsibility to residents and each other.

Vision Statement

Working together to provide the highest quality of care and the best quality of life for veterans and their families.

Financial Details

Ability to Pay

This is the process of assessing residents’ income and determining a liability for services provided by the facility.

This is the full amount to be charged to the resident based on the resident’s income and resources. Should the resident become a Medicaid recipient, the amount of the maintenance fee shall be the same as the Medical Care Credit.
