VA Mather Gets a New Emergency Department— NEWS

VA Mather emergency entrance

Have you heard the news!? The brand new Emergency Department at the Sacramento VA Medical Center opened this past Tuesday with a lot of excitement. To celebrate the opening of this new, and much needed resource, the VA used the 50th anniversary commemoration of the Vietnam War to dedicate the state-of-the-art Emergency Department addition.

Nacht & Lewis worked with the VA Northern California and BVB Construction to complete this new facility addition which will increase the hospital’s emergency room space by 8,254 s.f. and add 12 private patient rooms.

To see more from the dedication ceremony, we’ve collected local media coverage below:
