“This is a remarkable and exciting time for our healthcare system and for the veterans and families we serve, “said Suzanne Klinker, director of the Bay Pines VA, in a prepared statement. “Just a few years ago this new facility was just a sketch on a piece of paper. Now, in a just a few short months the doors will open to our nation’s heroes.”
