Lewiston/Auburn VA Clinic Moving Forward
Business, Health, News

Congressman Mike Michaud, Chairman of the House Veterans’ Affairs Subcommittee on Health, announced that the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has awarded a contract for the construction of the new VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC), which will be located at 15 Challenger Drive in Lewiston, just off the Lewiston exit of the Maine Turnpike.  CD Smith Construction, which is the same company working on the new Bangor CBOC, was selected by the VA for the construction of the Lewiston CBOC.

“I have been working with the VA to make sure that this project stays on track and gets up and running as soon as possible,” said Michaud.  “I am pleased that the VA is moving forward with construction, and I will continue to monitor their progress.  Our veterans, in particular our older veterans who have difficulty traveling to Togus, have waited long enough for VA services closer to home.”

According to the VA, the new CBOC will be a one-story building that will meet current VA standards and specifications, and it will have 156 parking spaces.  It will provide primary care, mental health, physical therapy, audiology, home based primary care, and care coordination services.

Earlier this year, Michaud worked with the VA to open an interim clinic at the Army Reserve Training Center on Minot Avenue in Auburn so that area veterans can access health care closer to home while the new clinic is being built.
