Western Kentucky Veterans Center (WKVC) opened March 14, 2002 in Hanson, Kentucky. Situated on 33 acres of beautiful farmland 5 miles north of Madisonville, the 156-bed facility provides long-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation for Kentucky's veterans. The campus includes three Community Living Concept households that are home to 12 veterans each. Each household has a country style kitchen/dining area along with a comfortable great room. Each household has its own separate entrance and enclosed porch and patio area for our veterans and their visitors enjoyment. Our mission is "We are committed to serving Kentucky’s veterans by fostering independence, preserving dignity and providing compassionate care."
