The facility will feature a 193,300-square-foot clinic, central utility plant, emergency back-up generators, five-bay ambulance garage, helipad and supporting facilities.

“The military is committed to providing those who serve with world-class healthcare services and facilities, and we are thrilled to help them execute their mission,” said Craig Stearns, Federal Group Leader for JE Dunn Construction.
Construction is expected to finish in fall of 2024.
