Sheridan VA Medical Center
Extended Care and Rehabilitation
The Sheridan VAMC offers on-site extended care services for Veterans requiring nursing home care or those taking part in the mental health residential programs.
The Mountain View Living Center (MVLC)
The Mountain View Living Center is a 50-bed unit that provides primary, preventive, therapeutic, and rehabilitative services to patients requiring a nursing home level of care. The philosophy of the MVLC emphasizes assisting the chronically ill or disabled veteran to achieve and maintain the highest degree of self-direction while affirming his/her autonomy and human dignity. The Extended Care Screening Committee reviews referrals for admission. The majority of residents on the unit come from the Sheridan VAMC catchment area.
Mental Health Residential Unit (MHR)
The Mental Health Residential (MHR) program has 40 beds and is a multidisciplinary treatment program with four specialty tracks that provide treatment emphasis in those areas where the individual is found to have the most need. These four specialty tracks are Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Serious Mental Illness (SMI), Co-occurring Disorders, and Substance Abuse (SA). Referrals for these programs primarily come from other VA facilities located within VISN 19.
Unit 8 is one of two units offering inpatient psychiatric care. Unit 8 is a locked unit that has a capacity of 16 inpatient beds and two quiet/seclusion rooms. This unit provides acute and subacute general psychiatric services to stabilize patients in preparation for discharge to home or transfer to a less restrictive environment.
The Special Needs Unit (SNU)
The Special Needs Unit is the second of two psychiatric units. It has a 30-bed capacity and has the capability of being locked, depending upon patient population needs. This unit provides general psychiatric services to patients in preparation for discharge to home or transfer to a less restrictive environment.
Domiciliary Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program (DRRTP)
The DRRTP is a 40-bed therapeutic residential facility for homeless veterans. The focus is to provide quality psychosocial services and facilitate recovery in a safe environment. Vocational rehabilitation is a primary component of the program. The program is strength based, and treatment and discharge plans are comprehensive and individualized. Length of stay is 90 to 120 days.
