Speaking at the opening Croatia’s Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister and Veterans’ Affairs Minister announced that an additional three centers are being planned for future construction.

A new veterans' center was opened in Sinj on Friday. Valued at almost 8.5 million Euros, the center can accommodate up to 130 veterans. Recently the first such center was opened in Šibenik, while another two are under construction in Daruvar and Petrinja. Deputy Prime Minister and Veterans' Affairs Minister Tomo Medved: “All four of the centers, with a combined capacity of 620 beds, will be able to provide care to twelve thousand veterans annually.”

The centers are designed to serve as an institution of social rehabilitation that will encompass the provision of comprehensive care in one place, with the goal of the full reintegration of Homeland War veterans into civilian life. The centers will also deal with alternative forms of care focused on family and community.

Speaking at the opening today, Prime Minister Andrej Plenković announced that he will repeal the law which through special regulations reduced some 62 thousand veterans' pensions by 10%.
