GEORGETOWN, Del. - More than 100 people gathered in Georgetown for the grand opening of the new Veteran Administrations outpatient clinic.
Officials say it's a big win for our local veterans and something they've been waiting on for quite some time.
Before this there was a great need for the larger, updated clinic due to the large amount of senior veterans in the area.
The new clinic has 10 primary care exam rooms, eight behavioral health consultation rooms, and three dedicated telehealth rooms.
It's a facility the nurses and staff say allows them to do their job the best they can.
"This is truly a calling for us when we say we are here for the veterans. We're not joking that truly is why we are here, some days it,s a hard job but everyday it is a rewarding job," says Meg-Marie Ryan, nurse manager for the outpatient clinic.
The new facility also has two medical specialties, two clinical procedure rooms, and two dedicated women's health rooms.
