The Manchester VA Medical Center is celebrating the reopening of its women’s clinic today.

A tour of the reconstructed space on the sixth floor will take place as part of the open house scheduled for 5:30 p.m.

The reconstructed women's clinic will have its own waiting room and restroom.

It has been closed since July, when a pipe burst and flooded it and several floors below. Interim Manchester VA Medical Center Director Al Montoya says about 85 percent of the space that was flooded has since been reopened.

Some areas of the VA, including the post-anasthesia care unit, and the operating room on the fourth floor, aren't scheduled to re-open until April. The Manchester VA's new pharmacy and phlebotomy space are expected to be completed by this spring.

Construction of a new women's clinic on the first floor is scheduled for fiscal year 2019.
