About 200 people attended an informational meeting Thursday afternoon to learn more about the opening of a Veterans Administration outpatient clinic in Norfolk.
Cindy Sestak, Assistant Director of the VA’s Nebraska-Western Iowa Health Care System, says they’ve been seeing a need to open one of their OWN clinics here. She says there are approximately 2400 veterans in the area who would be eligible to use the clinic. It will be located in the Pasewalk Plaza at 700 South 13th Street. It’s scheduled to open to November third.
Other community based clinics have been or will open in Holdrege, Bellevue and Shenandoah. The VA is scheduled to open an outreach clinic next year in O’Neill.
