New VA Specialty Outpatient Clinic Opens in Corpus Christi

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

It is the day many local veterans have been waiting for: the opening of a VA Clinic right here in Corpus Christi.

The new VA Specialty Outpatient Clinic is located at 205 South Enterprize Parkway, across from Del Mar College. Doctors have been seeing patients there for the last week.

It has been a long time coming for local veterans who, in the past, have had to travel to San Antonio or Harlingen for medical care.

"Looks like a hospital," veteran Gene Jackson said. "They've got the pharmacy here. My doctor, my orthopedic doctor, is here. They have all the specialist here."

Some other services provided by the clinic include physical therapy, mental health exams and dentistry. Soon, they say, they will be able to provide cardiology and pulmonary exams.
