Veterans medical clinic dedicated

Veterans in Clermont County have a new facility that can attend to most of their health care needs. The 15,600 square foot Veterans Administration Medical Center Clinic opened its doors on Sept. 1 this year and held a dedication and ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Nov. 10.

A large group of staff members, local dignitaries and veterans were on hand for the event. The new facility located at 4600 Beechwood Road in the Eastgate area offers veterans primary care physicians. The clinic also offers specialty doctors for podiatry, optometry, mental health and will soon have an audiologist and physical therapy services.

Congresswoman Jean Schmidt presented a letter of recognition to the administrators of the facility and commented that veterans of Clermont County are blessed to have a clinic which offers so many services close to where they live.
