Named for two Medal of Honor recipients — Colonel Van Barfoot and Colonel Carl Sitter — the Virginia Department of Veterans Services partnered with Clark Nexsen to provide space planning, interior design, wayfinding, preparation of construction documents, and construction administration for the Sitter & Barfoot Veterans Care Center. Per the VDVS website, this facility sets the gold standard in quality care for Virginia’s veterans.

“In conversations with people who have visited the facility, they are so impressed they are at a loss for words trying to describe how great the facility is, in both architecture and decor.”

— Bill Van Thiel, Administrator, Virginia Veterans Care Center

A low-rise project offering three levels of care including nursing, Alzheimer’s, and domiciliary, this facility provides “nursing home care similar to community based nursing homes” as part of its range of services. Featuring numerous public activity spaces, dining rooms, lounges, administrative offices, conference and training rooms, and staff and building support areas in addition to its 160+ beds, the space provides exceptional veterans care and ample opportunity for socialization.
