The Phoenix Business Journal reported earlier this month that the Phoenix VA Hospital is looking to build an outpatient clinic in Downtown Phoenix to help alleviate crowding at their facility on Indian School Road.  US Representatives Harry Mitchell and Ed Pastor sent a letter of support for the project to the US Department of Veterans Affairs and recommending the project for funding approval.  A decision to include the project in the 2012 VA budget could come as early as February of 2011.  The project is expected to cost more than $200 million.  For more information please visit:  Phoenix VA seeking $200M clinic
