That’s because of the extremely fast pace on the development of the new veteran’s clinic off of Johnstonville Road. The clinic is set to be the newest clinic for the VA Sierra Nevada Health Care System, encompassing 20 counties in both Northeastern California and Northern Nevada. The clinic will mark the fourth for the system, which has opened clinics in Auburn, Calif., Fallon, Nev. and Minden, Nev. The building is owned by Dale and Linda Soulé, who provided the property its being built on and much of the funding for the project, along with Tri-Counties Bank. The clinics are operated out of the Lugaris VA Medical Center in Reno, Nev.
The Susanville clinic is being built by J Williams Construction out of Redding, Calif., a company specializing in commercial building construction. Dale Soulé said Williams and his company have been contracted for a number of his businesses, including the Alliance for Workforce Development building on Main Street.
