US Representative Sue Myrick (NC-09) announced last week that the Department of Veterans Affairs plans to build a new VA Health Care Center in Charlotte by 2013.

“This is really great news for veterans in our district,” said Rep. Myrick. “Our current Community-Based Outpatient Clinic does great work, but is not equipped to meet the needs of our growing veteran community in Charlotte. This new facility will ensure that our veterans have the quality care that they so deserve.”

The new health care center was a project listed in the 2010 Department of Veteran Affairs budget request sent to Congress earlier this year.
