Indiana Veterans Home Superintendent stepping down

The Indiana Veterans Home is looking for a new superintendent.

Tony Stewart announced his resignation from the position to staff at the state-run facility Monday, reportedly to pursue another job opportunity.

He had been superintendent since 2008.

Stewart made many changes during his tenure, including demolishing some older buildings and making improvements to other structures.

He also attempted to cut costs by outsourcing certain support services such as housekeeping.

An interim superintendent has not been named.

The Indiana Veterans' Home is a state-operated facility under the administration of the Indiana Department of Veterans Affairs.

The Medicare- and Medicaid-licensed facility is home to approximately 260 military veterans or their spouses.
