Building For the Future

The Butler VA Health Care System is continually improving existing structures, facilities, and technolgies for our Veterans. Check out our completed construction projects below: the new Community Living Center (CLC),  Domiciliary (Dom), and Health Care Center (HCC).

Community Living Center
The mission of VA Community Living Centers is to restore the Veteran to maximum function and independence, prevent declines in health, and provide comfort at the end of life. Now complete, The Butler VA's CLC houses 60 Veterans and encompasses 54,000 square feet. It is designed to make Veterans feel more at home by providing them with a community setting, as well as private rooms and baths. The facility is named after Vietnam Veteran Sergeant Joseph George Kusick.  CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.

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. The Butler VA 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. The Butler VA'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 opened for Veterans on September 5, 2017. The facility is named after after WWII hero, Bataan Death March survivor, and former POW Sergeant Major Abie Abraham. CLICK HERE TO READ MORE.
