Bedford VAMC Optometry Clinic, (aka Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital).
Like so many of our projects, this took a long time to complete and required the commitment and dedication of a small army of individuals.
For starters, the Bedford VAMC was built in 1928 and is listed on the US National Register of Historic Places, and the historical part of any renovation or addition is always going to offer its own set of challenges. Of course the needs of our veterans will always come first, however the historicity of these sites must be maintained as much as possible, and there are “commissions” over-looking every step and phase of such a project.
And so, while the outside of the building and the grounds continue to boast their vintage charm, many of the inside clinics will quickly remind even the casual observer that there are constant improvements being made in all departments, around the clock to better serve the veteran community, even in the places most people never see.

We at Veterans Development Corporation, Inc. are very proud of everyone involved with this project. The collaboration of efforts between the hospital staff, our own personnel, and the different sub-contractors and vendors came together to produce the results you can see in the photos below.
The new Optometry Clinic will now serve our hero veterans in the greater Boston area for decades to come, and we are honored and humbled to be a part of that.
