On behalf of our Veterans, we thank you for your support. Your donations help to bring new innovative programs, new equipment and to enhance the quality of life for the Veterans we serve.
The LISVH is a 350 bed not-for-profit skilled nursing facility located on the campus of Stony Brook University. The dedicated staff at the LISVH stands ready to provide short term rehabilitation, skilled nursing care and adult day health care to the 250,000 veterans who reside on Long Island; those brave men and women who have helped to make our nation secure and have advanced the cause of freedom throughout the world.
The LISVH has earned the reputation as a leader among the nation’s 145 State Veterans Homes as well as private long term care and rehabilitative care providers. As one of the few “teaching nursing homes” in the United States, we are proud of our mission to train the next generation of physicians, nurses, therapists, dieticians, social workers and administrators as it relates to the care of the frail, elderly population. Our veterans truly benefit from our relationship with Stony Brook University Medical Center and the Health Sciences Center.
On behalf of our Veterans, we thank you for your support of our facility. Your donations help to bring new innovative programs, new equipment and fund other programs and projects possible for those Veterans at the LISVH.
By making a gift to the LISVH you are joining thousands of individuals who, each day, are committed to helping our area’s veterans.

Many different donation opportunities are available including our “Wish List” to help brighten the life of a Veteran.
