About Spanish Peaks Veterans Community Living Center
Spanish Peaks Veterans Community Living Center is an award-winning veterans nursing home in Huerfano County, Colo., located minutes from Interstate 25 between Pueblo and Trinidad. Our location is truly remarkable, with the mighty plains to the east, a state park literally across the street and majestic mountains surrounding the property.
With 120 long-term care beds, Spanish Peaks Veterans Community Living Center serves veterans, spouses, widows and Gold-Star parents of veterans from all over. Colorado residency is not a requirement for admission and we work closely with families to identify conditions/disabilities that may significantly subsidize the cost of care.
We strive daily to provide exceptional quality of care, delivered with dignity and respect. Our activities program consists of a team of dedicated professionals who host approximately 150 diverse planned activities each month.
It is our honor and privilege to care for our residents and their families and we invite you to learn more at https://www.spvclc.org.
