New Veterans Administration facility opens

During the current economic crisis and with the health care industry in turmoil, the Veterans Administration is offering veterans an alternative to meet all their health care needs.

A new VA Medical Center Clinic opened its doors Sept. 1 and doctors, nurses and administrators are now meeting the health care needs of more than 3,300 veterans at the facility, located at the corner of state Route 32 and Beechwood Road, across from Roy Rogers Restaurant in the Eastgate area.

The 15,600 square foot facility not only offers veterans primary care physicians, but also has specialty doctors for podiatry, optometry, mental health and soon will offer an audiologist for hearing disabilities.
