Martinsburg, W.Va. (AP) -- Work will begin soon on a nearly $6.5 million mental health clinic at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Martinsburg.

Acting associate director Timothy Cooke says other capital improvements include expanding the emergency room and replacing the air-handling system for the medical center's 178-bed nursing home.

Construction of the clinic is expected to begin this month and to be completed by January 2011.

Cooke says the clinic will consolidate outpatient mental health services in one building and provide more efficient service.

The medical center and six outpatient clinics serve more than 130,000 veterans in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.
