INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A new $40 million health center for Hoosier veterans is now under construction in Terre Haute and expected to open in less than a year.

The outpatient clinic is expected to serve as many as 10,000 veterans enrolled in Veterans Affairs health care, expanding both primary care and mental health offerings in the Wabash Valley.

The clinic will feature basic imaging, physical therapy, optometry, telehealth, audiology and home-based care. It will additionally host an on-site pharmacy and other support services.

Congress approved funding for the Terre Haute facility, along with 27 others, in 2017. The facility has since become one of the largest service expansion projects undertaken by Veteran Health Indiana.

Hokanson Companies Inc., an investment and corporate real estate developer, is now leading the ongoing construction project.

Officials say the 45,000-square-foot facility, located on Terre Haute' east side, will also offer services geared toward homeless veterans. The clinic is expected to open its doors in fall 2021.
