Builder Needed for Lufkin V.A. Clinic

Several contractors are now working on their proposals to help the Charles Wilson V.A. Clinic in Lufkin build its new facility.

The clinic needs a contractor to buy land selected on John Redditt Drive and construct a 37,000 square-foot facility at the site. The clinic will then lease the building for a period not to exceed 20 years.

Employees hope to move in to their bigger and better building by the spring of 2008.

The outpatient clinic provides primary care, laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, and mental health services to veterans in the area. Last year, there were more than 45,000 outpatient visits to the clinic.
