SOUTHSHORE / RIVERVIEW, FL – A Veterans Outpatient Clinic will soon be under construction along US-301 next to the Summerfield Crossing shopping center in Riverview, FL. (correction: Clinic not Hospital)

VA South Hillsborough Clinic

UPDATE 12.6.2016: The 20.7 acres of land for the new VA Clinic was purchased by the VA HILLSBOROUGH INVESTORS LLC for $3,275,000 on November 4th, 2016 according to Hillsborough County Records.

The nearest VA Hospital from the future Riverview VA Clinic is the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital on Bruce B. Downs Blvd, about 26 miles away. This will make it more convenient for veterans in need of care.

A few years back, I drove myself and a friend to the VA on Bruce B. Downs a couple of times a month.  My friends name was Harold Quinn – God rest his soul. We all called him Hal.

He was a war hero who served on a B1 Bomber in WWII. He got a kick out of my laugh and free spirit; and I was in awe of his reverence to God and his love he had for his wife Norine.

And even though we had a great time talking and making jokes on the way up and back from the VA, a location in Southshore would have been easier on us both. (in memory of my friend Hal)

  1. Well this will be a great thing for the Vets in south Hills. it is such a nightmare trying to get to the James Hally or even to Fletcher Ave. I can’t wait for this thing to open. It will be like the one on Fletcher Ave., is this correct??

  2. This will be such a blessing to a lot of Vets out here in south Hills. that ride to VA hospital or even to flecherave. is such a night mare

  3. Am I understanding correctly that this will be a hospital and not a community based outpatient center (cboc)? That would make my husband and I delighted to get all of our care and medications so close to home!

    ADMIN REPLY:
    It is an outpatient center. I sincerly apologize for having hospital in the post. with deep regret…craig

  4. Property was sold a few days ago. Expect construction to begin Spring of next year.

    ADMIN REPLY:
    Rob, thank you for your comment. I looked up the sale and it was recently purchased by VA HILLSBOROUGH INVESTORS LLC for over 3 million.

  5. In one of the above pictures, Aldi is mentioned to be built at this location. Is that still true?

    ADMIN REPLY: Hi Fred. I had to change the photo. Aldi is in plans to be built next to the old Citco gas station and by the new First Watch restaurant, which is on the other side of 301 from the proposed VA.

  6. Thanks be to God for the VA hospital in Riverview! Much appreciated by my husband (who served in Viet Nam) and I who are both veterans, and live in Wimauma.
