Mansfield to see new VA clinic by spring 2013

Mansfield News Journal – The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs will build a new Community Based Outpatient Clinic on South Trimble Road by spring 2013.

The facility will more than double the space available for medical and mental health care at Mansfield’s VA clinic. It serves six counties, Richland County Veterans Services Director Larry Moore said.

The facility will be constructed with federal funds, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown’s office announced Thursday.

McCready Zupan Holding Co. LLC, one of three bidders, proposed building the 24,700-square-foot facility at the northwest corner of Trimble Road and Marion Avenue, Moore said. Under the federal contract, the Mansfield-based company would receive $1,245,427 annually in rent for 20 years. That amount would include shell rent of $959,894, operating costs of $285,533 and base-year real estate taxes amounting to $150,000.

The facility will provide veterans with primary care, physical therapy, services for home-based primary care, a pharmacy and optical shop, as well as enhanced podiatry, optometry, and mental health services and more.
