Ohio veterans unit to get $5M renovation

– A veterans center in southwest Ohio is planning a $5 million renovation of the dementia unit of its long-term care facility.

Officials at the Dayton VA Medical Center tell the Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/1mMqIaG) that the project calls for modernizing the 40-bed unit with updated safety and technology features, and “quality-of-life” enhancements.

Hospital officials say the renovation is part of $84 million in upgrades already approved for federal funding.

The medical center provides medical care to more than 35,000 veterans a year at its campus, west of downtown Dayton.

Proposals to renovate the dementia unit will be accepted through mid-March. The project is expected to be finished nine months after it’s begun.
