A brand new, large-scale health care center is in the works for Tulsa-area veterans

The VA will break ground on the new facility in April near 91st and Mingo, combining all three existing centers in the area.

The 140,000 square foot building will offer new women's services, GI, and mental health services.

"I think the wait time is going to go down, parking is going to be 100 percent better, and it's just going to be a lot better all the way around," Tulsa VA patient Dennis Hoch said.

They hope to finish construction by the summer of 2021.

There will also be a new veterans center in Sallisaw this morning.

The city will be the new home of a 175-bed center after the one in Talihina closes.

It will be built about a half mile south of the city's airport.

2 Works for You have learned that they are waiting to get a grant approval for construction, and then it will be another two to three years before it's complete.
