WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs approved a new lease for a facility in Hawaii.

The Maui News reports U.S. Sen. Mazie Hirono announced the approval to build the island's one-stop facility for veterans Wednesday in a news release.

The facility will aim to consolidate medical, psychological and administrative services into a single location to reduce confusion, travel and overcrowding.

According to the release, the lease is a partnership between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the state Department of Education, which owns the land.

The facility will be built near Maui High School in Kahului.
