New Biden Infrastructure Plan Gives $18 Billion for VA Hospital Upgrades

An ambitious $2 trillion infrastructure plan by President Joe Biden (also known as the American Jobs Plan) has assigned $18 billion for improvements to Veterans Affairs medical centers. The aim of the package is to generate millions of employment opportunities and to rebuild the country’s infrastructure.

According to an article published by, “Along with major investments in projects to rebuild American highways, ports, and airports, the proposal calls for “vastly improving our nation’s federal facilities, especially those that serve veterans. Administration officials noted that while the median age of private-sector hospitals in America today is about 11 years, the median age of VA hospitals is roughly 58 years. The $18 billion would be spread over a variety of modernization and new construction projects, with the goal of providing better facilities for VA medical care.”
