Washington veterans hospital cancels behavioral health expansion

Spokane, Wash.-based Mann-Grandstaff Veterans Affairs Medical Center has halted plans to build a  behavioral health facility after federal funding for the project was pulled, according to local news website Inlander.

Though the Department of Veterans Affairs approved a number of projects for the hospital, including a $19.9 million boiler plant and a $15.4 million primary care building, the behavioral health facility did not make the cut.

"After further examination and project prioritization, the final list of approved projects was reduced to ensure successful execution of all remaining construction projects," said Robert Fischer, Mann-Grandstaff Veterans Affairs Medical Center director. "Unfortunately, our mental health building required removal from the list."
