From the News & Observer:

The N.C. Division of Veterans Affairs will open two skilled nursing facilities for veterans in the next several months, expanding the state’s capacity to care for its elderly soldiers.

The new homes, each with 100 beds, are in Kinston and Black Mountain.

“It’s going to be great to have this space available,” said Greg Hughes, chief of social work for the Durham VA Medical Center, which will oversee the medical care provided at the home in Kinston. The one in Black Mountain will be administered by the Asheville VA Medical Center.
