Construction of the Bemidji veterans’ house on schedule

The Minnesota Department of Veterans Affairs says construction of the Bemidji Veterans Home is on schedule.

The new home will be on the 900 block of Anne Street on 15 acres donated by Sanford Health, adjacent to the Sanford campus grounds.

The home will accommodate veteran residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease in the memory care unit.

A groundbreaking event took place last August and the house is expected to open in the summer of 2023.

The MDVA plans to begin accepting resident applications in September.
