Charlotte Hall Veterans Home

Charlotte Hall Veterans Home has been proudly “Serving Those Who Served” since 1985.  The Home is situated on 126 beautiful acres in St. Mary’s County and offers and a continuum of care from the 168-bed assisted living program to the 318-bed skilled nursing program.   Charlotte Hall Veterans Home also offers memory care in secure units. The Home is Medicare/Medicaid certified, and all veterans receive a per diem subsidy from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to reduce their cost of care. The Home is inspected annually, as required by the Office of Health Care Quality, MD Department of Health, and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Our vision is to continually develop and deliver a safe, dignified, and compassionate healthcare system; and provide a nurturing and engaging home environment for Maryland’s veterans.

The Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs is proud to partner with PruittHealth to provide our veterans with the comfort and high-quality care they deserve.  Visit the PruittHealth Charlotte Hall microsite for more information.
