Wilmington, NC VA clinic back on track

In November, 2009 the VA announced that a new "Super Clinic" was to be built in Wilmington, NC.
The plan was to have the clinic completed by this year, but hit a snag last year when the developer could not obtain the land needed for the clinic.

A new contractor for the $66 million project has been secured and the plan now is to have the
clinic operating by 2013.

The new clinic will provide specialty services such as audiology, neurology, podiatry and
optometry as well as primary care and mental health care.

North Carolina is home to nearly 800,000 veterans, and the new clinic will serve up to 7 counties
in Wilmington area of Southeastern North Carolina.

Senators Richard Burr (R-NC), Kay Hagan (D-NC) and Congressman Mike McIntyre (D-NC)
have all praised the plans and have indicated they plan to make sure the program stays on

Again the VA is to be praised for increasing the availability of care for our veterans. These men
and women sacrificed a great deal to protect our country, now our country must care for them.
