New VA clinic planned for eastern Indiana city

RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — A new, larger clinic for military veterans with additional medical services is being planned in an eastern Indiana city.

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs has picked a site north of Richmond’s downtown area for the new clinic. The new site of about 12,000 square feet will be nearly double the size of the current clinic.

It is planned to open in the fall of 2014, with services including primary care, X-ray rooms, optometry, outpatient mental health and a laboratory.

Ron Weadick of Richmond tells the Palladium-Item (http://pinews.co/180PutR ) he’s glad to hear the new clinic will have X-ray services since he often drives fellow veterans to the VA hospital in Dayton, Ohio, to undergo X-rays.

The Richmond building was previously home to a dialysis center and medical and professional offices.
