New 106,000-square-foot James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital Primary Care Annex will help expand healthcare to more than 87,000 veterans in four Florida counties.
(Tampa, Fla. And Indianapolis, Ind. – Aug. 20, 2014) More than 87,000 veterans in the Florida counties of Pasco, Polk, Hernando and Hillsborough now have a good reason to celebrate.
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) just opened the new 106,000-square-foot James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital Primary Care Annex in Tampa, greatly expanding healthcare services to the veterans in those four counties.
Indianapolis-based Duke Realty developed the two-story clinic located at 13515 Lake Terrace Lane in the Hidden River Corporate Park at Interstate 75 and Fletcher Avenue. The facility houses services formerly provided by the nearby James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital. In addition to primary care services, the clinic offers a comprehensive women’s center, radiology, mental health services and dental services. The VA leases the facility from Duke Realty.
This is the second facility Duke Realty has developed for the VA. The firm developed a 213,029-square-foot satellite outpatient VA clinic in Fort Worth, Texas, which opened in fall 2010.
“We’re proud to once again partner with the VA to develop a modern, technologically-advanced healthcare facility for our country’s veterans,” says Duke Realty Healthcare President Jim Bremner. “The new clinic will be an important community asset, providing much needed healthcare services.”
“We are pleased to open our new Primary Care Annex in Tampa and are looking forward to providing exceptional healthcare services for our nation’s veterans,” says Kathleen R. Fogarty, Director of the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital in Tampa. “The new facility represents a continuation of the VA’s commitment to increase veterans’ access to the highest quality services and to enhance patient care and customer satisfaction.”
The architect for the project was Minneapolis-based HGA (Hammel, Green and Abrahamson).
