The Jones & Cabacoy Veterans Care Center (J&C VCC) in Virginia Beach and the Puller Veterans Care Center (Puller VCC) in Fauquier County will open in late 2022.  Applications for admission will be available in Summer 2022.  To be notified when applications are available, please contact Mrs. Kendra Ellison at 804-786-0220 or


Ensuring that the residents of our care centers 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.
