Butler, PA – Construction for VA Butler’s new Health Care Center (HCC) is complete, and the new facility will officially be open for Veterans on September 5, 2017. An official Ribbon Cutting Ceremony is planned for Tuesday, August 29, 2017 at 10am to mark the occasion.

“This is a milestone I could not be more excited about as it renews our commitment to providing high quality, accessible health care to our nation’s Veterans here in Butler Pennsylvania,” said David Cord, VA Butler Healthcare’s Director. “This new facility not only will improve, but also enhance and help us expand the outpatient health care environment for our Veterans and their families.”

The new HCC located at: 353 North Duffy Road, Butler, PA 16001 (approximately 1.4 miles from the existing campus) includes primary care, specialty care, mental health, dental, diagnostic, laboratory, pathology, radiology, podiatry, optometry, pharmacy, physical rehabilitation, and women’s health. It is also fully equipped to continue as well as expand the technology used by VA to provide care. This includes telemedicine equipment for telehealth, clinical video telehealth, teledermatology, teleretinal exams, and teleaudiology.

The HCC is a two-story building with 168,000 square feet, and more than 1,300 parking spaces. It is silver LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certified. VA will lease the HCC facility from Cambridge Healthcare Solutions PA, LP (Cambridge), of Vienna, Virginia for a 20-year term.
