October 28, 2016
EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – The Department of Veterans Affairs Gulf Coast Veterans Health Care System is pleased to announce the contract award to expand the outpatient clinic near Eglin Air Force Base. The expansion will nearly double the clinic’s current size to approximately 34,000 square feet.
The contract to expand the GCVHCS’s current VA clinic near Eglin AFB was awarded to ESA South Inc. and the Notice to Proceed was issued this week.
The expansion, tentatively scheduled to be complete in approximately 18 months, will allow GCVHCS to expand its primary care and behavioral health services in the additional space. No new services will be added to the Eglin VA clinic. The cost of the expansion is not expected to exceed $10 million.
In the coming weeks, patients receiving care from the Eglin VA clinic will notice fencing and signage around the parking lots, as contractors prepare the site for construction. GCVHCS officials ask all patients to use caution and render courtesy to each other and the contractors when they arrive on site for their appointments.
