The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) will build a community-based outpatient clinic at 1225 Oakdale Road in Modesto, Calif., which will more than double the size of the current clinic and offer expanded services for Veterans.
"The new clinic will provide state-of-the art medical services to the Veterans of the Central Valley," said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki.
The $10.3 million lease contract was awarded to California Gold Development Corporation, Sonora, Calif., on June 13. Construction is scheduled to be completed in late winter 2012. At least 100 jobs during the site development, construction and activation of this project will be created.
The contract calls for construction of a 23,250 square-foot, one-story building. Services to be provided at the clinic include primary care, mental health services, limited specialty care, and ancillary and diagnostic services. It will be a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) silver-certified building and include 150 parking spaces, which will be located on the north, west, and south sides of the clinic. VA will lease the facility from the developer for a 10-year term with renewal options once construction is complete.
The clinic will serve approximately 7,000 Veterans. It will also increase treatment capacity and reduce the travel burden for Veterans residing in the Central Valley. VA services currently offered in Modesto will remain operational until the completion of the new facility. The clinic is approximately one quarter mile south of the Stanislaus Surgical Hospital, and 1.5 miles from Memorial Hospital.
