Department of Veterans Affairs Awards Lease for New Clinic in Redding
Oct 3, 2018
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) issued the following statement after the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) awarded a new lease for a healthcare facility in Redding, California. Once completed, the new clinic will consolidate the operations of two existing clinics in the area while also providing 50% more total space. The expanded space allows for an additional 17 mental health providers, a mammography division, and a second x-ray unit at the facility.
Last year, with Congressman LaMalfa’s support, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee authorized the VA to lease the new facility in Redding. The North State is home to more than 60,000 veterans and many more active duty service members.
LaMalfa said: “One of my top priorities in Congress has been improving the quality of care for veterans in the North State. I worked on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee to authorize this new lease last year, and I’m pleased the VA is moving forward. This is a significant, if overdue, upgrade to the types of care and services available to our veterans in Redding. Now we must ensure the facility is staffed with high-quality doctors and health providers in order for it to deliver on its considerable promise.”
Congressman Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing California’s First Congressional District, including Butte, Glenn, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou and Tehama Counties.
