Site Selected for New Lufkin Veterans' Clinic; VA Now Seeks Builder

January 10, 2006

LUFKIN, TX - The Department of Veterans Affairs has obtained an assignable option to purchase approximately seven acres of land located at 2206 John Redditt Drive in Lufkin, TX for the construction of a new outpatient clinic. Once completed, this new, larger facility will replace the current Lufkin clinic located at 1301 W. Frank Ave.

Currently, the VA is seeking a builder to purchase the land and construct a 37,000 square-foot facility on the site. The VA will then lease the facility for a period not to exceed 20 years.

The Charles Wilson VA Outpatient Clinic in Lufkin provides primary care, laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, and mental health services to veterans in the area. In fiscal year 2005, there were 45,244 outpatient visits to the clinic.
Developers interested in this project should contact the Department of Veterans Affairs Real Property Service at telephone (202) 565-9131, fax (202) 565-5424, or e-mail Samuel.perminter@va.gov no later than February 10, 2006.
