GARLAND, Texas - Months of negotiations have finally resulted in a deal to turn a vacant Garland hospital into a new VA heathcare facility.
Long-term, federal officials said it'll create jobs and provide better service to veterans.
Short-term, it could be used as overflow for veterans and non-veterans alike.
Congressman Colin Allred was part of group pushing for a deal.
Baylor Scott and White donated the facility.
The hospital shut down in 2018 and has been vacant since.
