Building For the Future
VA Butler Healthcare is continually improving existing structures, facilities, and technolgies for our Veterans. Read about our construction initiatives below - and check out our completed construction projects, the new Community Living Center (CLC) and new Domiciliary.
Health Care Center
On December 31, 2014, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) awarded a lease contract for a 168,000 net usable square foot Health Care Center (HCC) in Butler, Pennsylvania, to Cambridge Healthcare Solutions PA, LP (Cambridge), of Vienna, Virginia. VA Butler Healthcare was selected for an HCC because of its mission as a large outpatient clinic – with a need for significant capital improvements – to support the health care needs of local Veterans into the future. VA Butler’s new Health Care Center received Congressional approval and was authorized as Public Law 111-82 on November 24, 2009 as a major lease. The new HCC will open for Veterans on September 5, 2017.
