“This is a milestone I could not be more excited about as it renews our commitment to providing high quality, accessible health care to our nation’s Veterans here in Butler Pennsylvania,” said David Cord, VA Butler Healthcare’s Director. “This new facility not only will improve, but also enhance and help us expand the outpatient health care environment for our Veterans and their families.”

It is also fully equipped to continue as well as expand the technology used by VA to provide care. This includes telemedicine equipment for telehealth, clinical video telehealth, teledermatology, teleretinal exams, and teleaudiology.

The HCC is a two-story building with 168,000 square feet, and more than 1,300 parking spaces. It is silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified. VA will lease the HCC facility from Cambridge Healthcare Solutions PA, LP (Cambridge), of Vienna, Virginia for a 20-year term.
