U.S. Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand announced Monday that $190 million to complete a modernization and expansion project at the Canandaigua VA Medical Center has been included in a fiscal year 2019 Senate appropriations bill.
“Our veterans have protected and defended us, and when they finish their tour of duty it is our job to care for them,” Schumer said in a press release. “The new Canandaigua Veterans Affairs medical campus does just that by giving Rochester-area veterans the facilities they need and deserve. This $190 million in funding for Phase II will help get this project over the finish line for veterans in Rochester and beyond.”
