Six major projects are in progress at the Veterans Affairs hospital complex in Biloxi.

Officials expect much the work to be completed next year.

The Biloxi complex was built in the 1930s. It has taken on more patients since the Gulfport veterans hospital closed just after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Construction began in December 2008. The six projects are part of the $150 million in work at the VA Center.

The VA Gulf Coast Health Care System, of which Biloxi is the main facility, serves about 50,000 veterans yearly along the coast between Hancock County and the Panama City, Fla., area.
