Dayton VA moves ahead with $5M project


The Dayton VA Medical Center is soliciting bids for a $5 million renovation of the dementia unit of its long-term care facility, hospital officials confirmed Wednesday.

The renovation will be included in $84 million in upgrades already approved for federal funding at the Dayton VA, which is planning an additional $140 million in facilities upgrades over the next few years.

The latest project calls for modernizing the 40-bed, nearly 16,700-square-foot Community Living Center with updated safety features, technology upgrades and “quality-of-life” enhancements to create a more home-like setting, according to Glen Costie, the medical center’s director and CEO.

“We are committed to ensuring that veterans receive the highest quality of care in an appropriate health care setting for their respective needs,” Costie stated.

With about 1,900 employees and a $280 million annual budget, the medical center provides a wide range of medical care to more than 35,000 veterans a year at its campus west of downtown Dayton.

The medical center dates back to the 1800s and includes more than 50 buildings with more than 1.4 million square feet of space.

Requests for proposals for the renovation project will be accepted until March 14, according to Costie, who said project is expected to be completed nine months after inception.

The medical center is seeking Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses to submit bids. The project will be advertised on fbo.gov.
