New VA clinic coming to McMinn County | Health
Veterans in McMinn County and the surrounding area will have a new place to get medical care.
Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. announced Wednesday that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has given final approval for a VA-staffed outreach clinic in the County.
"I started trying to get a VA clinic for McMinn County several years ago, and I am very pleased those efforts have come to fruition," Duncan said in a press release.
"I am very grateful to the VA for seeing this need for McMinn County and the surrounding area and responding to my request," Duncan continued.
The VA hopes to have the clinic operational in about 6 months.
