Veterans in Central Oregon now have a clinic they can go to, instead of having to travel to Portland for medical help.
Dan Herrigstad with the Portland VA Medical Center says the new clinic will offer many more services that will be convenient for local vets. "Our audiology, physical therapy, our eye care is going to be expanded, podiatry, dermatology will be expanded. Increased clinical pharmacy presence, we're going to have a pharmacist here, right on site. Tele-Health, which is video Tele-Health services. Video conferencing, video appointments for veterans, we can do that right out of this facility. It helps a lot of folks so they don't even have to come into the clinic here."
Herrigstad says the 25,000 square foot facility will be open Monday through Friday and they will also have walk-in days on Wednesdays.
