WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - The Robert J. Dole Veterans Affairs Medical Center says it expects to finish three renovations this summer and open its new $7.5 million primary care building next May.

The Wichita Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1F8Ayj9 ) this summer’s renovations include a solar panel project, expanded parking and emergency generators.

The VA says its new primary care facility will provide team-based care as part of an industry-wide movement for patients’ medical providers to work closer with one another. The center will be designed in pods, so that providers can work together.

Primary care patients are now seen on the west side of campus. The VA plans to fill that space with other medical offices when the new building opens in May 2016.
