FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — The Fayetteville VA Medical Center is holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new health care center, which began accepting patients in November.

The 26,000-square-foot facility houses most of the outpatient services previously located on the medical center's main campus and two offsite clinics. Those services include primary care, mental health, outpatient services and an ambulatory surgery center.

VA Deputy Secretary Sloan Gibson will deliver the keynote address Monday. Others expected to speak include U.S. Rep. David Price and Sens. Thom Tillis and Richard Burr. They're due to be joined by U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia, who is the chair of the Senate Committee on Veteran Affairs.

The VA plans to upgrade the vacated space in the main campus for services such as an urgent care center.
