Northern Arizona VA Health Care System


Community Living Center

The Community Living Center (CLC), previously referred to as the Nursing Home, is an extended care facility which provides medical, nursing, rehabilitation and other supportive services for a limited and long term stay.  

The Northern Arizona VA Health Care System (NAVAHCS) Community Living Center (CLC) is a short-term rehabilitation and stabilization unit. The facility is designed to foster an independent, restraint-free, home-like atmosphere that provides inpatient care to eligible Veterans in the Northern Arizona service area. The mission of the CLC is to honor America’s Veterans by providing exceptional health care that improves their health and well-being. The vision of the CLC is to transform ourselves into a truly Veteran-centered organization providing excellence in healthcare, research, and education; an organization where people choose to work; an active community partner; and a back-up for national emergencies. The CLC personnel focus on the I.C.A.R.E. values; Integrity, Commitment, Advocacy, Respect, and Excellence.

Veterans in need of CLC programs are admitted as services, space and staffing are available. The facility must be able to meet the care, competency, and safety requirements needed for the Veterans care. The Veteran must be medically and psychiatrically stable.

The NAVAHCS CLC provides Veteran centered care, with the goal of creating an individual care model that addresses the human spirit, needs, strengths and necessity of connectedness, relationships and growth at the heart of every person, all people- staff, residents, and families. We strive to provide a home-like environment that fosters comfort and familiarity while stimulating a sense of purpose and belonging. Families need to be involved with the personalization of the Veteran resident’s room. Distinctive décor, plants, pets, computer access and children bring vitality to both public and private areas of a home-like CLC. These elements provide an opportunity for interaction and a chance for resident Veterans to provide rather than receive care. The use of music, art, natural lighting, a variety of colors and textures, the presence of personal belongings, and access to the internet/video games are other important considerations.

The CLC is staffed by an interdisciplinary group which includes;

Medical Providers- Doctors, Physician Assistants, Certified Nurse Specialists, and Nurse Practitioners


Nursing Assistants

Mental Health Services

Physical Therapists

Speech Therapists

Occupational Therapists

Kinesthetic Therapists


Recreation Therapists
