(Courtesy rendering) More than $31 million in additional funding has been secured as a hedge against inflation in developing a new hospital in Tulsa to care for veterans who live across eastern Oklahoma and the broader region. Initial funding for hospital construction was announced last year. According to a release from members of Oklahoma's congressional delegation, the additional funding was included in the recently passed National Defense Authorization Act to offset inflation and ensure timely completion of the project in 2024.
