Garland/VA Hospital Update

We contacted Robert John Smith, Councilman for District 8 and requested an update on the Garland hospital situation. Baylor Scott & White remain the owner and the VA is hoping to be able to take it over to serve area veterans. Here is Robert’s update:



“Congressman Allred announced a tentative date of 1/20/20 for a formal deal announcement and closure. They are working through property surveys and titles at this point making sure that everything is in order, and the Feds are performing their required environmental study. It’s in the VA’s budget for FY’20, so I believe this thing is going to happen. Stay tuned!”
