I want to recognize the support of our strong community partnerships and thank everyone who advocated to make this facility happen, especially our veteran community in the Kentuckiana area."

The new hospital will integrate modern patient-centered care concepts to provide the best possible care for veterans. In addition, to specifically address the needs of our women veterans, the new hospital will include a women's health clinic with four patient aligned care teams (PACT).
