V. Billea, director of the Martinsburg VA Center, an- nouncod today that work has begun in Phase I on the project to construct a new VA Center on the site of the present structure east of Martinsburg on Route 9. The new facility, scheduled for completion in 1982, will consist of a new 357-hod six-story hospital; 120-bed nursing home; and a 200- bed domiciliary. With the ex- coption of 300 beds of the domiciliary, plus several an- cilliary buildings, these struc- tures will replace the present facility affectionately known to the people of the community as "Baker VA Center." Billes noted that while the present plant has served long and well, the physical facilities can no longer be adapted to the changing needs of the concepts of modern health care. This, along with excessive main- tenanee requirements to keep the structure at acceptable levels, makes the replacement a necessity. The initial phase of the con- struction project was awarded to W. Harley Miller, Inc., of Martinsburg. This project in- cludes capping and relocation of utilities, demolition of several buildings, construction of a temporary parking lot and roads, as well as numerous other items to prepare for con- struction. Billes joins with the entire staff at the center in expressing their gratitude to the community for its support and efforts in gaining the replacement facility.
