Denver (AP) - Colorado veterans will get a stand-alone VA Hospital in the Denver suburb of Aurora to replace a 59-year-old facility.
Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki announced the plan on
Wednesday.
The hospital will be built on the University of Colorado Medical Campus. Officials had also considered putting the hospital inside a university hospital building.
Shinseki says the new VA Hospital will have a Spinal Cord Injury
Center.
He says the VA will also build health care centers in Colorado
Springs and Billings, Montona.
Shinseki says the Colorado facilities will mean that 92 percent of the veterans in the state will be within one hour of a primary-care facility.
