DENVER — Over budget by nearly $1 billion, the cost of the recently opened Rocky Mountain Regional Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Aurora are, by now, well known.

“I think it was a smart program. Like I said, the cost was pretty minimal. Staff was ours. We leased from the GSA at a good rate, so I think it was worthwhile. It’s one of those things where if you have a situation, an accident on a construction site, patient (or) employee; not sure where they are going – I think it was [a] smart thing,” said Gill.
