BY PATRICK MITCHELL

PAST COMMANDER NYS SONS OF AMVETS

On August 11, AMVETS Post 48 Members made a visit to the Long Island State Veterans Home to make a donation to assist them with their mission which is first, to provide the highest quality and most comprehensive health care services to Long Islands Veterans, and second, to serve as a model site for research, and the education and training of tomorrows long term care and geriatric professionals.  In addition, AMVETS Post 48 invited Suffolk County Legislator Leslie Kennedy and Suffolk County Comptroller John Kennedy to this event due to their long term support in terms of AMVETS Post 48 Mission to assist Veterans and their Families receive every benefit they are entitled to receive. Legislator Kennedy and Comptroller Kennedy presented proclamations to the Long Island State Veterans Home and AMVETS Post 48 for their commitment to the Veterans and their Families on Long Island.

The Long Island State Veterans Home opened its doors to its first residents on October 25, 1991, after more than after more that 12 years of intensive planning and building.  Located on the gold coast of Long Island, on the campus of Stony Brook University, the Veterans Home is 350 bed skilled nursing facility that provides round the clock nursing and sub-acute care to veterans of the United States Armed Forces. Now almost 30 years later, the Long Island State Veterans Home has emerged as one of Long Island’s premiere providers of long-term skilled nursing services and adult health care and has compassionately cared for more than 10,000 United States Veterans.

If interested in more information about the Long Island State Veterans Home which is located at 100 Patriots Road Stony Brook, NY11790 please contact Executive Director Fred Spanga at 631-444-8606 or e-mail at fredspanga@lisvh.org
