$20M U.S. infusion will boost VA campus here

Citizen Staff Writer

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.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
