Significance: The Veterans Administration Medical Center is significant as an example of the expansion policy of the Veterans Administration in the 1930's; as the first Veterans Hospital in West Virginia; for its association with a prominent West Virginia physician and politician, Henry D. Hatfield; as an example of a significant architectural style of the period, Georgian Colonial Revival, and as an example of the influence of Federal standardized design for projects of the period. Building No. 12 is significant as the first addition to the original site, and as a primary example of the standardized design approach of the VA. This is an exact copy of the structure originally designed for Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
