Omaha VA Medical Center to Install Vets Resource Center
Through road closed for building installation Feb. 26
OMAHA, Neb. — The main road that passes through the Department of Veterans Affairs medical center property at 4101 Woolworth Ave., in Omaha will be partially closed at the Center Street entrance from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Feb. 26.
The closure is because the VA is installing three, large pre-fabricated modular building sections onto a foundation for what will become a Veterans Vocation and Housing Resource Center.
All VA medical center traffic will be required to use the Woolworth Avenue entrance.
Staff at the new center will provide homeless veterans or those who are at risk of becoming homeless primary care, employment assistance help, and other services.
The 2,867-square-feet building is projected to open in late spring.
The VA Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System proudly serves more than 167,660 veterans in Nebraska, western Iowa and portions of Kansas and Missouri. Omaha’s medical center is an inpatient facility and also a large outpatient clinic for primary and specialty care. The Community Living Center is in Grand Island. There are community-based outpatient clinics in Lincoln, Grand Island, North Platte, Holdrege, Norfolk, Bellevue and Shenandoah, Iowa.
