VA Selects HOK Team for Master Plan of West Los Angeles Health Campus

The federal Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has chosen a team composed of HOK, Walsh Group and Core Companies to work with the community and develop a master plan for its West Los Angeles Campus.

Strategic planning and development of the VA’s campus will enhance healthcare, housing and other services for veterans in the region.

“We will transform the West LA VA campus into a vibrant community where all veterans can receive healthcare, benefits, employment, and other supportive services,” says Vincent Kane, senior advisor to the secretary on homelessness. “With the HOK / Walsh / Core team assisting in this effort, we are one step closer to achieving a gold standard of care, support, convenience and customer service at the VA West LA Medical Center.”

The agency’s vision also includes state-of-the-art facilities for primary care, mental health and addiction services. HOK has extensive experience with strategic medical campus planning and facility projects in Southern California, including involvement in a recent project for the VA Long Beach Healthcare System.

Over the next few months, the team will solicit feedback, comments and input from various stakeholders, organizations and community partners to inform the master plan, which will be finalized and released later this year.
