The Connecticut Veterans Home, founded in 1864, was the first home for Veterans in the country. At the Sgt. John L. Levitow Healthcare Center (HCC) in Rocky Hill, our team of dedicated professionals continues our mission to “Serve Those Who Served”. The HCC follows a rehabilitative model providing long-term care to Veteran patients with chronic, disabling conditions who require 24-hour assistance.
When you walk through the doors of the HCC, one immediately feels a sense of community, comfort, and camaraderie. The HCC stands apart from other 24-hour care centers with full time Physicians and Advanced Practice Registered Nurses on staff. Veteran patients also enjoy private and semi-private rooms with en suite bathroom. Our highly trained staff is dedicated to providing compassionate care to meet the unique needs of Veteran patients, built on the foundation of integrity, honor, and respect. We pride ourselves on fostering these qualities as we honor Veteran patients for their service and encourage the innate bond between them.
