JACKSONVILLE, Fla — The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs plans to replace two Jacksonville health care sites with a new 164,000-square-foot clinic, an agency spokeswoman said Friday.

President Donald Trump mentioned the new clinic in passing during a campaign speech Thursday night at Cecil Airport on the city’s Westside, saying the new facility would be in North Jacksonville.

A specific location hasn’t been announced, but VA spokeswoman Cindy Snook said the clinic will take the place of the VA’s Southpoint center at 6900 Southpoint Drive North and its University center at Memorial Health Plaza, 3900 University Blvd. South.

The new facility will let VA upgrade its primary care and mental health treatment and expand radiology, optometry and audiology that are offered onsite in Jacksonville, Snook said.
