Aurora Site Of New VA Medical Center

After years of delays and false starts, Denver-area veterans are finally getting a new medical center.

"For months, the project, which is supposed to replace an aging and overcrowded Department of Veterans Affairs medical center east of downtown Denver, has been in doubt, as VA officials struggled to find a site large enough to suit their needs.

On Wednesday, Aurora Mayor Ed Tauer and U.S. Rep. Bob Beauprez said VA and Fitzsim ons officials have agreed the new Colorado veterans hospital will be built at Fitzsimons."
