The new Radcliff Veterans Center that’s promising to be a national showplace for skilled nursing care is staffing up for its July opening.
Six members of the executive team are already working and the next phase of hiring was launched Feb. 22.
Administrator Israel Ray says five new leadership positions are posted.
“The director of nursing, which is called the nurse executive. And staff development, which will be listed as a registered nurse. The director of dining services. Our activities director and our housekeeping supervisor,” says Ray.
The veterans center is also looking for a medical director.
Construction is progressing at the new center, which is located on 192 park-like acres donated by Fort Knox.
The Radcliff Veterans Center will house 120 veterans, each in a private suite. Ray says each building will have 10 suites, with expansive common space that includes a courtyard.
“And they have their private dining area, their entertainment area and reading nook,” says Ray. “The amount of common space is unparalleled to anything I’ve ever seen in this country. It is really spectacular, especially to be able to serve our veterans here in Hardin County.”
When fully staffed, the center will have about 250 employees. Online job postings for the center can be found here.
