The Fort Whipple VA Hospital served veterans in Yavapai County. In 1931, the Veterans Administration acquired the old hospital/sanatorium complex on the former Fort Whipple grounds in Prescott. In 1938, the demolition of old tuberculosis wards began and the hospital and dining room foundations were started. The main hospital was designed to accommodate at least 200 patients. Construction on the main hospital was finished in May 1939 at a cost of $750,000.
