Tulsa to get new VA hospital
TULSA — A new downtown Tulsa Veterans Administration hospital and a repurposing of the VA's Muskogee medical center are key components of a plan revealed Monday after President Donald Trump included $120 million for the Tulsa facility in his budget.
The Tulsa hospital will occupy the Kerr-Edmondson state office complex on Houston Avenue between Third and Sixth streets and across Sixth from the Oklahoma State University Medical Center. Officials said the building will be completely renovated and additional space added. Plans call for the property to be transferred to the OSU regents and for the hospital to be part of the OSU Medical Center complex.
State workers now occupying the Kerr-Edmondson complex will be moved to new, undetermined locations.
