New Ocala VA clinic nearing completion after a year of construction
A new VA outpatient clinic is nearing completion from its location southwest of Ocala.
After construction began in June 2020, major construction of the new 60,000 square feet took about a year and teams are currently putting the finishing touches to the clinic.
The North Florida / South Georgia Division of the US Department of Veterans Affairs regularly posts photos of the construction progress of the facility.
“As of June 14, phases 1 and 2 of the project are practically complete. They install floor coverings in phase 3 and lay ceiling tiles in phases 3 and 4, ”reads an article from the organization.
The new clinic will offer a wide variety of services, including primary care, mental health care, audiological optometry, sample collection and telehealth services.
Ocala Investors, LLC is the developer and owner of the property, which is located directly behind RaceTrac, Bojangles and Culver’s, which is under construction.
The main contractor in charge of the project is the Doster Construction Company.
Right across State Road 200, CarMax completed construction and opened the doors to its new Ocala plant earlier this year.
Culver’s, which was announced earlier this year, has made rapid progress in building its location along State Road 200, which is right next to Bojangles.
Chicken Salad Chick has opened a new location nearby, the first in Ocala and the second in the Tri-County area.
Although an opening date has not yet been announced, when it does open, the Ocala VA clinic will operate Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
