Fix the VA                                                                    Friday, April 14, 2017
The VA Medical Center in Northport is on Federal property. There are 250 acres of land available to build a new Hospital with all appropriate infrastructure and new vehicular access from the south of the property. Every other major VA Medical Center in the New York Metro area has been rebuilt. Northport should be no exception. There are 180,000 Veterans in Nassau & Suffolk Counties who could benefit from a $681 million investment for a new state-of-the-art Medical Facility. It will take 1 1/2 years to build, equip, & staff. Then, the 90-year old existing buildings can be demolished; the soil remediated; and the area returned to parkland. The VA has the money! They seem to have found enough for other major capital projects across the Country. Why not Long Island?
