GREEN BAY - A Milwaukee construction company has been selected to build Green Bay's new Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic.
The VA says Summit Smith, Inc., is expected to break ground on the building later this year, with the clinic opening in 2013. The clinic, to be located in the 2800 block of University Ave., will have 161,525 square feet and 1,200 parking spaces. It will be a two-story building built on 27 acres of land.
The facility is expected to offer ambulatory surgery, a specialty clinic, women's clinic, mental health department and diagnostic imaging.
Summit Smith will own the building and lease it to the VA for 20 years at $5.6 million per year.
More specifics will be discussed in about two weeks when construction and VA officials meet to exchange ideas before final blueprints are drawn up.
Veterans have been waiting for a clinic to come to Green Bay. Currently, veterans must travel to Appleton for treatment.
