VA hospital to get $20 million in federal stimulus

The Southern Arizona VA Health Care System will receive $20 million from the federal stimulus package, U.S. Rep. Raúl Grijalva said Monday.

“Our veterans and their families have tremendous needs and this is one step in ensuring that their health care remains a priority,” Grijalva, D-Ariz., said.

About $18 million of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Plan money will go for construction of a 180-bed unit for extended care programs.

Another $2 million will go for facilities renovation, fire sprinklers installation, and energy and water conservation programs at the 3601 S. Sixth Ave. campus.

Citizen Online Archive, 2006-2009

This archive contains all the stories that appeared on the Tucson Citizen's website from mid-2006 to June 1, 2009.

In 2010, a power surge fried a server that contained all of videos linked to dozens of stories in this archive. Also, a server that contained all of the databases for dozens of stories was accidentally erased, so all of those links are broken as well. However, all of the text and photos that accompanied some stories have been preserved.

For all of the stories that were archived by the Tucson Citizen newspaper's library in a digital archive between 1993 and 2009, go to Morgue Part 2
