LUFKIN, TX – In late August 2007, the Department of Veterans Affairs awarded Don Langston Construction, Inc. the contract to build a new community based outpatient clinic for veterans in Lufkin.
Projected to be completed in 2009, the clinic will be located on approximately seven acres of land at 2206 John Redditt Drive. Once completed, this 37,000 square-foot facility will replace the current Lufkin clinic located at 1301 W. Frank Avenue and 1514 Ellis Avenue.
Langston Construction, located at 1000 South Medford Drive in Lufkin, has built other medical facilities in the area including the Woodland Heights Medical Center, the Palmer Dental Clinic, and the Croley Dental Office in Lufkin, and the Livingston Pediatric Clinic in Livingston, Texas.
“We look forward to offering a modern, state-of-the art health care facility for our veterans in the Lufkin area," said Edgar L. Tucker, MEDVAMC director. “One of the greatest benefits of the new clinic is that veterans will be able to obtain both primary and mental health services at one location.”
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 2006, there were 44,117 outpatient visits to the clinic.
