REDDING, Calif. - The nation's 11th largest VA health care system, VA NorCal, will have a brand new facility in Redding.
The Department of Veterans Administration announced that it will award a lease to U.S. Federal Properties for construction of a VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinic in Redding.
The new 77,000-square-foot center will replace the city's current 48,000-square-foot clinic located on Hartnell Avenue. The new location will be at 3455 Knighton Road and it will include 520 parking spaces.
The project will cost around $50 million, $1.5 million of that being personally funded.
It will also have 30,000 more square feet of usable space, which can accommodate growth in primary care, mental health and existing specialty services.
"We wanted a place where they are secure, they are safe, we can support them, we can hold their hand when they need it and help financially when they have too," said Former State Senator Marice Johannessen CA District 4.
It will also allow for additional telemedicine rooms for new specialty services including allergy and immunology, nephrology and rheumatology.
"This new clinic will ensure veterans in Redding and the surrounding communities have access to cutting-edge healthcare technology and the home-like comforts," said David Stockwell, director of CA northern California.
Design and construction of the clinic are expected to take more than two years, with the opening projected for 2022.
"When seeing all of this stuff come together, it is amazing," Johannessen said. "I am glad I have lived long enough to complete the things that I promised."
