Washington Soldiers Home Orting

The Washington Soldiers Home is located on 181 acres in the beautiful Puyallup Valley near Orting. Established in 1891, this was the first of four homes built for Washington state veterans.

Eligibility

All Washington State Veterans Homes are Medicare and Medicaid certified facilities. To be eligible for admission, applicants must meet the following criteria:
