Fayetteville VA Coastal Health Care System
Construction UpdatesThe past few years have been filled with excitement for our staff, Veterans and community! Veteran Access to care is being expanded throughout the region. New facilities of varying sizes and capabilities are now open in Fayetteville as well as Jacksonville and Sanford. “The growth in the Veteran population in eastern North Carolina has been steady and is projected to continue for the foreseeable future,” said Elizabeth Goolsby, director of the Fayetteville VA Medical Center. “The site in Goldsboro, open since July 2013, the Health Care Center in Fayetteville open since November 2015, along with the new clinic in Sanford, and a new larger replacement clinic in Jacksonville open the door to VA health care for thousands of Veterans.”
Most outpatient services previously offered at the Fayetteville VA Medical Center relocated to the state-of the-art facility. The 259,000 net usable sq. ft., Health Care Center (HCC) at 7300 South Raeford Road, is located approximately 10 miles from the Fayetteville VA Medical Center’s main campus. Built by Ohio-based Fedcar Company Ltd., VA holds a 20-year lease with an annual rent of $10.5 million for the property which opened Nov. 3, 2015.
The HCC enhances and improves the outpatient health care environment for up to 38,000 Veterans and their families. The new facility provides primary care, specialty care, day surgery, audiology, pharmacy and radiology services and will include an eye clinic. The HCC will also house ancillary and diagnostic services in support of the primary and specialty care clinics.

Public Comments Sought on Building 1, D Wing Expansion
The movement of the outpatient services to the Health Care Center paves the way for renovations and expansion of specialty services at the main campus which will be used for inpatient services, an Urgent Care Center and some limited outpatient services such as dental and oncology.
Two of the more prominent expansions coming to the main campus are the construction of a stand-alone Community Living Center (CLC) and the expansion of Building 1, D-Wing. The CLC construction project aims to better serve the needs of Veterans needing long-term care. Public meeting to present this project and invite discussion was held in May 2014.
The Building 1, D Wing expansion aims to address the growing need for additional space in several departments within the Medical Center. To make room for the Building 1, D Wing expansion, Building 8 which was constructed in 1939, will be demolished. Details about the project can be found here.
Because our main campus includes properties or districts either listed on or considered eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, similar consultations like those held for the stand alone CLC project are underway. The public is invited to offer comments or concerns on the project’s impacts to the historic property or draft Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) as follows:
