Earlier this week, Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin wrote a letter to Rep. Mike Coffman, a Republican who represents Colorado’s 6th Congressional District, informing him that the facility will now be called Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center.

The hospital is expected to open sometime in 2018.

The construction of the hospital has gone through its share of troubles, including being more than $1 billion over budget.
