Colonel Robert Howard State Veterans Home
Pell City, Alabama
The Alabama Department of Veterans Affairs selected Doster to build the state’s fourth veterans' home, which will be built in Pell City. Doster was selected for the $41 million contract over six other companies.
The home will have 254 private rooms in which 174 are skilled-care beds and 80 are domiciliary/assisted living units. Veterans will live in neighborhoods that will have two to three houses with 12 to 14 private rooms, personal bathrooms, living and dining areas with a complete kitchen for serving meals.
Other features of the home include a community center, a barbershop and salon for both male and female veterans, and a sports bar. The home will also have a "Hall of Honor" dedicated to the men and women who have served their nation in uniform.
