Colorado vets health care facilities get stimulus cash
DENVER, Colorado ” Two Colorado veterans hospitals and a nursing home will share nearly $11 million in federal stimulus money for repairs and upgrades.
The VA Medical Center in Denver is in line for more than $5 million in repairs and upgrades, mostly to heating and air conditioning systems.
It’s not clear whether those repairs are for a building that will still be used after a new, 200-bed VA hospital opens in the Denver area, expected in 2013.
The VA Medical Center in Grand Junction will get $3.8 million for a new solar-power system, repairs to ventilation systems and renovations.
The State Veterans Nursing Home in Walsenburg will get more than $2 million for general renovations.
The plans were announced Wednesday by Colorado Sens. Mark Udall and Michael Bennet.
