Ensuring that the residents of the Virginia Veterans Care Center (VVCC) in Roanoke and the Sitter & Barfoot Veterans Care Center (SBVCC) in Richmond are cared for in a safe and healthy environment is our highest priority.
We are also committed to keeping our residents and families connected and welcome in-person visitation.
VVCC and SBVCC continue to follow CMS, CDC, and VDH guidelines. A care center team member will explain the procedures that must be followed during in-person visits, including the requirement for wearing of non-cloth masks.
We encourage, and offer upon request, COVID testing prior to visitation to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus and to protect the health of our residents and staff.
Families needing to connect with their loved ones outside of in person visitation, should contact VVCC at 540-982-2860 or SBVCC at 804-371-8000 for help coordinating alternative means of connection, such as phone or video chat.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together to protect the health and safety of our veterans while keeping you connected.
VVCC and SBVCC are accepting applications for new admissions. Please contact VVCC or SBVCC to learn more.
