Florida’s seventh nursing home for military veterans will be built in western Port St. Lucie.
Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet on Tuesday voted unanimously to approve $17 million in funding for the 120-bed facility, which will cost an additional $27 to $37 million in federal funds to construct, according to the St. Lucie County government website.
The 28.5-acre site was donated by the Tradition Land Company, and is expected to employ about 190 people.
