VA Improves Access for Disabled Veterans

The Syracuse VA Medical Center recently completed a newly redesigned and improved DAV (disabled American veterans) entrance, which will help disabled veterans access the services the center offers.

The state-of-the-art, extra-large, revolving door accommodates large mobility devices such as wheelchairs and scooters. The $1.1 million entry redesign project also vastly improves energy efficiency by replacing sliding doors with the new revolving door and separate Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-approved bypass door. The project also improves physical security with the addition of security cameras, card reader and bollards.

“I want to thank our dedicated DAV volunteer drivers and office staff led by Ed Rogers,” said Frank Pearson, Syracuse VA Medical Center director. “We know how proud you are of what you do for our veterans and we know this improvement will make you even more proud of the effort that we make as a team to provide best care anywhere for this special group of veterans.”
