The Michigan Veterans Homes (MVH) housed within the Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs provides quality long term care for veterans and their eligible family members through a federal-state partnership with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (USDVA). High Quality care for this phase of life is central to the “member for life” concept. Currently the MVH operations homes in Grand Rapids and Marquette, with a third home opening in Chesterfield Township in 2021.
The Grand Rapids Home for Veterans (GRHV) is a long-term care state veterans home located on 90 beautifully wooded and landscaped acres near the mighty Grand River. It was originally constructed in 1885 and is one of 152 state veterans’ homes throughout the nation. Initially founded in response to the needs of veterans in the aftermath of the Civil War, GRHV continues the tradition of serving the needs of Michigan’s veterans today, changing and adapting to the needs of the current and future veteran populations.
GRHV employs an extensive professional staff of physicians, nurses, social workers, dietitians and recreational therapy aides. All work together to ensure pleasant and fulfilled lives for the members, while providing them the medical care they need. GRHV also provides a broad and advanced psychiatric program to meet the varied and unique mental health needs of veterans.
