OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Federal officials will meet with Omaha veterans Friday to discuss what they want in an eventual replacement for the aging Department of Veterans Affairs hospital.

The Chief of Staff of Veterans Affairs Robert Nabors will meet with veterans at two events along with Rep. Brad Ashford.

A 2007 study found the hospital was plagued by problems in its electrical system, heating and cooling systems. It is on a list of VA facilities to be replaced, but it is behind a number of other projects. A new VA hospital in Omaha is likely still years away.

On Friday morning, Nabors will meet with veterans at the Veterans Affairs Dental Clinic. A second event will be held in the afternoon at the Great Plains Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America.
