Construction Updates:

The second phase of the Canandaigua CARES Major Construction Project was officially awarded to the Hueber-Breuer Construction and Pike Company Joint Venture on October 23, 2019 for $176 million dollars.  This project will construct 8 community living center (CLC) houses to facilitate new living environments for long term care Veterans on campus.  The project will also construct a community building for residents.  Additionally, building 9 will be renovated to support new food and nutrition services and domiciliary care.  The work will begin in 2020 and will include the demolition of buildings 33 and 34 to make space for the new CLC houses. 

The roadway loop around the Canandaigua VA Medical Center is closed from Building 18 to Building 36.

We appreciate everyone’s patience and support as we work to revitalize the Canandaigua VA Medical Center.
