WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Department of Veterans Affairs has selected the contractor to build a new community-based outpatient clinic in Billings, Mont.
“This new facility will ensure that Montana’s Veterans continue to have the world-class medical care that they’ve earned through their service to our Nation,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.
One of Secretary Shinseki’s top priorities is increasing access to VA care and services for Veterans wherever they live. VA is expanding access in a three-pronged effort that includes facilities, programs and technology.
The contract calls for construction of a one-story building in Billings. The project includes 52,141 square feet of space for specialty services for Veterans, including primary care, mental health, specialty care, laboratory, pharmacy, outpatient surgery, dental, audiology, radiology, physical therapy, and vision. Space is also allocated for Veterans Benefits Administration offices. In addition, 230 parking spaces will be constructed.
The new facility will be located near the existing 26,000 square foot CBOC located on the west end of Billings at Spring Creek. The clinic will annually provide outpatient services for 11,000 Veterans in eastern Montana.
