TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) --The Tuscaloosa News reports (http://bit.ly/NwUYaF ) that the Tuscaloosa Veterans Affairs Medical Center held a ribbon-cutting and open house Friday for the newly renovated wing. U.S. Sen. Richard Shelby was the guest speaker at the event.

The medical center opened a primary care unit for female veterans about two years ago.

The success of that unit led the mental health leadership to seek to establish a similar environment within its residential program for female veterans.

The renovation cost $300,000 and includes an eight-bed unit with a living room and lounge area, a laundry room, a spa with a whirlpool and a salon area, where women can receive beauty treatments.
