• Contract Awarded for Joint Veterans/Active Duty Clinic on Former Ft. Ord

    The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs announced Sept. 19 that The Hamstra Group was awarded the contract to build the joint VA-DOD clinic in Marina. The new clinic, situated on 14-acres of the former Fort Ord, is the second joint clinic in the nation and the first built specifically from the ground up to care for active duty service members, their families and veterans all under one roof.

    Construction of the clinic is expected to begin in the spring of 2014 and will take approximately 18-24 months to complete. The federal government anticipates opening the clinic in the fall of 2016.

    When completed, the three-story building, 104,000-square-foot facility will provide care for the approximately 80,000 active duty military and retired veterans living on California’s Central Coast. The new facility will provide primary care and specialty care including medical/surgical subspecialty clinics, mental health care, audiology, physical and occupation therapy, ancillary and diagnostic service. The clinic will replace the VA’s existing clinic which is too small to serve the current population and cannot be expanded.

    Farr helped secure funds to build the joint clinic and recently introduced H.R. 272, a bill to name the facility after General William H. Gourley who was instrumental in the clinic’s development.
