The Department of Veterans Affairs has announced that it will construct a $53 million VA medical facility in Cape Coral, Florida, intended to provide health services for Southwest Florida veterans.
The new Cape Coral VA facility will replace the Fort Myers, Fla. VA facility. The proposed 220,000-square-foot medical facility will provide medical treatment for Florida veterans and should be completed within two years.
According to the VA, the Cape Coral VA medical building will include:
- Surgery and outpatient support
- Ambulatory surgery capabilities
- Specialty care and practices
There are an estimated 1.7 million veterans in Florida. There are currently seven VA major medical facilities in Florida, which is home to the second highest number of veterans living in the United States.
Disabled veterans living in Florida may qualify for VA disability benefits. Applying for disability benefits can often be a confusing and intimidating process for veterans and their families.
