Michigan plans new $97.6M long-term care home for veterans in Marquette

The state of Michigan and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs plan to build a new $97.6 million long-term care home for veterans in Marquette. It will replace the D.J. Jacobetti home, which opened in 1981.

The new, 157,000-sf skilled nursing complex will serve over 100 veterans. Each resident will have a private bedroom and bathroom with shared gathering and kitchen spaces. The complex will be composed of four neighborhoods with two-unit buildings and connecting green spaces to create a home-like atmosphere. The project will also include a community center offering supportive services, amenities, and meeting rooms.

IMEG will provide structural, mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire protection, and technology engineering design services for the project, which is slated to begin design in the spring of 2023.
