Opened November 9, 2005, the Kipnes Centre for Veterans is the newest of CapitalCare’s 11 continuing care centres. The centre, which replaced the Mewburn Veterans' Centre on the city’s south side, is a residential-style two-storey neighbourhood located on 1.93 hectares of land on the northwest corner of the former Griesbach military base in north Edmonton. The centre's eight houses are home to 120 long term care residents, and the central core is town square with a pub, chapel, barber shop, exercise room and coffee shop.
