State of the art medical care facility comes to veterans of Cape Coral, Florida.

 

va_1_120Whether you're looking to relocate, to retire or to relax, the addition of the $51million VA hospital is one more reason to consider Cape Coral homes for sale.

The projected December opening of the newest VA Hospital will offer many same day procedures not currently available within the area as well as some of the inpatient services supplied in the Fort Myers or Bay Pines facility. In time the extent of services will broaden and local residents will no longer be burdened by long trips to receive care that all veterans are entitled to receive. Those new to this area and those already residing nearby will appreciate the availability of premium healthcare services.
