VA Looking to Expand in Junction City

By Ryan Duey

The Veterans Administration (VA) has approached Junction City Manager Allen Dinkel with plans to construct a larger clinic facility in Junction City due to space constraints at the current Lieutenant General Richard J. Seitz Community-Based Outpatient Clinic.

The VA is seeking a facility of up to 50,000 square feet and is considering city-owned properties for development. Potential locations include the former call center building near South Spring Valley Road and a piece of land near Rucker Road. There is also the possibility of exploring private locations in the future.

Dinkel indicated it might be 2027 or 2028 before the project could occur. He briefed city commissioners this week and expects to bring more details back to the governing body soon.
