Castle Point VA to stay open

WASHINGTON – The Castle Point Veterans Administration Hospital in Wappingers Falls, which was proposed to close and be replaced by a new facility, is a dead issue.

The independent Asset and Infrastructure Review Commission was considering development of a more out-patient based facility about 10 miles from the current hospital.

That drew the ire of Schumer, other federal lawmakers from the Hudson Valley, as well as local and regional elected officials and veterans’ groups.

Senator Charles Schumer, who announced the end of the saga, said the bipartisan Senate members including the chair and members of the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee announced their formal opposition to the VA AIR Commission process.
