Edward C. Allworth Veterans’ Home: Lebanon, Oregon
The Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs chose Otak CPM to provide owner’s representative and project management services for the new Veterans’ Home in Lebanon, Oregon. We worked with the architect, contractor, and other vendors to oversee all facets of the construction processes to meet the Department’s objectives. The 154-bed facility, named the “Edward C. Allworth Veterans’ Home, The Place Where Honor Lives,” was designed using the small-house model for skilled nursing facilities.
The small-house model serves as a place where residents can receive assistance and support with activities of daily living and clinical care, without the care and assistance being the primary focus. Care is an earned benefit available to honorably discharged veterans, their spouses, and parents of service members who died while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces. Residents receive care from a nursing staff selected for their skills and training in meeting the special needs of veterans and their family members.
