The grand opening of the new VA clinic in Abilene is taking place Monday January 9th at 10:30am. Helping with the ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremonies is Congressman Randy Neugebauer, the Congressman will be the featured speaker too. The new bigger VA facility is located at 3850 Ridgemont Drive in the old Toys-R-Us building.

The new 13,000 square foot facility will offer additional services like audiology and physical therapy and more medical staff will be added as well. One obvious addition is ample parking for the nearly 19,000 Big Country veterans this new clinic will serve. It is predicted that area veterans will not have to wait as long to be seen by doctors with this new bigger VA facility.
