Leavenworth VA hospital adding 2 buildings

KSAL StaffSeptember 5, 2013

The Eisenhower VA Medical Center in northeastern Kansas is expanding to meet new needs and standards.

The Leavenworth Times reports construction is underway on a $2.75 million women’s health clinic. Meanwhile, bidding on a construction contract for a stand-alone, 27,000-square-foot nursing home closed Thursday.

Jim Gleisberg, a spokesman for the VA Eastern Kansas Health Care System, says the medical center already offers health services for women. But the number of female veterans has grown, Gleisberg says, and the new, 4,700-square-foot clinic will be able to serve more women.

The Eisenhower VA Medical Center also has an existing Community Living Center, as the nursing home is called. But it’s located on the third floor of a building, and current standards call for such facilities to be on the ground floor.
