VA Tampa Mental Health Clinic
Construction Tops Out at VA Tampa Mental Health Clinic
Hoar Construction, the general contractor on the project, announced the topping out of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Mental Health Clinic in metro Tampa. The best-in-class facility is designed to better serve the region’s service men and women. Once complete, the clinic will be a first-of-its-kind by integrating all the mental health services the VA offers into a single, full-service resource. It will also include a 60-bed inpatient residential treatment program (domiciliary) and 800 parking spaces.
With enhanced outpatient and inpatient mental health services under one roof, the design is focused on creating a warm, welcoming and therapeutic environment that supports healing and socialization, and emphasizes strong ties to community. The new facility replaces three undersized clinics—a psychology rehab and recovery center, a domiciliary and a mental health clinic. Therefore, pragmatic goals of functionality, adaptability, modernization and energy efficiency were also key. The facility is expected to open in the second half of 2023.
