PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The VA Palo Alto Health Care System cut a ribbon Thursday (April 25) to commemorate the new 10,000 square-foot “Welcome Center” on their VA Menlo Park campus.
The Welcome Center is a donated facility from California Real Estate Developer and Philanthropist John Arrillaga. Representatives from the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Arrillaga family will speak before a U.S. Army Veteran keynote speaker addresses the audience at the ceremony. Media are invited to attend the ceremony and subsequent open house.
About the new VA Menlo Park Welcome Center: The Welcome Center is a comprehensive therapeutic facility on the Menlo Park Campus of the VA Palo Alto Health Care System. Built solely through the generous donation of the Arrillaga Family, the 10,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art Welcome Center is the gateway to the Menlo Park campus, welcoming all visitors by providing a point of navigation and supplying a large continuum of services for Veterans, from specialized rehabilitative classrooms to a service dog training area, providing adequate space to train the trainers and canines.
