One-stop healthcare facility for veterans planned in Hawaii

March 16, 2017

A one-stop shop for medical and psychological services planned in Hawaii is a first-in-the-nation leasing arrangement for the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, according to an article on the Maui News website.

The $9.9 million facility will be built on leased land in Kahului. It will be the first time that the VA builds a facility on land it does not own.

The facility will consolidate the island’s three service locations: the Maui Vet Center in Maui Lani, which serves as a counseling center; the state Office of Veterans Services in Kahului, which assists members with applications for medical benefits; and the VA’s Maui Community-Based Outpatient Clinic, which provides general healthcare.

The new facility would replace the outpatient clinic and provide space for the other two services.
