Montcomery CAVHCS campus expanding

The Montgomery campus of the Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System is expanding.

Glen E. Struchtemeyer, CAVHCS director, told a group of veterans about the expansion earlier this month, as reported by the Advertiser. He was speaking at a meeting of Rep. Mike Rogers' (R-Saks) veterans advisory council on March 31.

He told the veterans that an architecture firm had been hired to begin work on an expansion.

Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange has scheduled his weekly press briefing to be held at the Montgomery campus on Friday to release more details about the new, 112,000 square foot, leased outpatient clinic in Montgomery.

The facility will use the "medical home" model the Army has adopted. It brings more medical staff and services to one location so patients don't have to go to different offices for different services, Struchtemeyer said.

The clinic at Fort Rucker is expanding, and the Tuskegee facility also is expanding and working to offer more services, including those for homeless veterans.

My Photo

I grew up in the military. Mom was an Air Force nurse for a few years, dad was a navigator on B-52s, among other things. One grandfather served in World War II, uncle is retired Navy, other grandfather and great-uncle served in Korea and a cousin is currently serving in the Marine Corps. Currently, I'm the military reporter for the Great Falls Tribune in Montana. Previously, 

As a military kids, we moved all over. As an adult, I've traveled all over and moved for work. But now, I'm putting down roots in Montana with my boyfriend. We just bought a house and are slowly but surely making it our home. We have more land that we know what to do with at the moment. Now we're getting a garden started, tearing down walls and having loads of fun at what we call the Homestead.

In a part life, I did PR for the guy who built the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the National Mall, social media for the National Museum of Health and Medicine, before that, edited two military technology magazines for a publishing group in the DC area and before that, I was the military reporter (among other things) at the Montgomery Advertiser, covering Maxwell Air Force Base, the Alabama National Guard, veterans and anything else military related in the area. And in between all of that, I leave town, preferably the country, whenever possible. It all started when I spent a semester in New Zealand.
