As excerpted from the Sacramento Bee.
The planned 158,000-square-foot, four-floor VA facility just outside Stockton is supposed to offer top-notch, patient-focused services, including primary care, mental health, physical therapy, prosthetics and dental. But under the current schedule, construction won’t start until late 2018 or early 2019. The first patient won’t be treated until summer 2022.
That isn’t soon enough for Assemblywoman Susan Talamantes Eggman, the latest official to raise a stink about the long wait.
