Obtaining a new VA Clinic is in the works for Tom Green County and the surrounding counties of Coke, Glasscock, Irion, Reagan and Sterling.
The West Texas VA Health Care System is in charge of the clinic and is looking to locate the new facility at 4240 Southwest Blvd.
The clinic has scored a one, the lowest rating, in Veteran’s Affairs hospital star ratings, for the past two years due to performance.
With the growth of the VA Clinic, the primary care team should increase from two teams to four.
The new facility is expected to be double the size of the previous building so that it may take in more patients and extend its services.
Services to be offered to eligible veterans include audiology, urgent care and physical therapy but not emergency services.
