More than 100 state veteran nursing home waiting list

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. -- More than 100 veterans are on a state-run nursing home's waiting list.

Administrator Dr. Kevin Crickard tells The Exponent-Telegram that 166 veterans are waiting for admission to the West Virginia Veterans Nursing Facility in Clarksburg.

The 120-bed Clarksburg facility began operation in 2007.

Mike Lyons with the West Virginia Department of Veterans Assistance says the Legislature is looking at the possibility of building another state-run nursing home in southern West Virginia.

Lyons says if a veteran is in dire need, their name can be moved up the waiting list.
