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)

South Hillsborough VA Primary Care 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. Without knowing a specific extension number it is not possible to contact any department in the Riverview Clinic. Calling the Riverview main number numerous times resulted in being transferred to the operator at the main hospital, James A. Haley. Additional transfers produce three or four additional transfers each one ringing for several minutes. When you finally get to speak to someone it is never at Riverview. Visiting the Riverview facility is equally challenging. The numerous volunteers are eager to offer assistance and direct you some ware any ware. Never wanting to admit they have no idea. There is no map of the facility or listing of extension numbers available to the public. The Riverview Clinic is new and is experiencing startup pains. Things will improve. They have to. It can’t get any worse.

  2. I may be interested in volunteering at this new location. I live nearby. How would I go about that?

  3. I’m a veteran from michigan . We are in riverview to for the winter. If I need a doctor can I go to the new clinic to see one thank you

  4. I’m pretty sure nobody served on a B1 in WW2…fact check. Cold War era B1 wasn’t commissioned until Regan brought it back from scrapped plans. The first tail # is an 83 model.

    1. I would like to find out how to apply. I am a chef by trade, but now have a degree in dietetic technician – my master’s degree is an MPA in food & nutrition policy. Can you please send me the link to apply at our beautiful new center in Riverview! I live blocks away, and I am happy to be a part of the opening team. I understand that the foodservice is contracted out.
      (only if I stay away from the yeast rolls at Texas Road House)
      Many thanks, Anne

  5. 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??

  6. 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

  7. 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!

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

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

    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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
