Washington, DC – The Department of Veterans Affairs recently awarded two contracts intended to improve access to VA health care in the metropolitan Phoenix area.

A second contract will fund development of the Southwest Community Based Outpatient Clinic at Estrella Health Center, which will provide care to more than 8,000 veterans.
Congressman Ruben Gallego released the following statement:
“The men and women who serve our country deserve the best access to medical services and mental health care. These two new contracts will help thousands of veterans to receive the care they need.
“I welcome the Department of Veterans Affairs efforts to improve the lives of Phoenix’s veterans and our families. This is a step in the right direction, and I am committed to working with the VA to do even more so that we honor the service and sacrifice of our nation’s veterans.”
