A winter storm warning is in effect today for Beaufort, Dare, mainland Hyde, Martin, Tyrrell and Washington counties. A winter storm advisory is in effect today for the rest of Eastern Carolina. The threats are snow, sleet and freezing rain.
This weekend is time to reflect on the sacrifice of the men and women who gave their lives for our freedom. Once they return home, their well-being and health care should be a priority.
That's one reason, in April, The Veteran's Affairs in Durham gained control of the facility once run by a private company. The V.A. Outpatient Center on Moye Boulevard in Greenville takes care of six thousand veterans in Eastern Carolina. Since our cameras were not permitted inside, we can't show you the problems inside, but we did see the clinic is in disrepair. Now there are changes in the works.
Jim Galkowski, Associate for Director of Ambulatory Care Service in Durham says, state of the art equipment will soon be included in the clinic, there will be more Providers to help serve the need and by August, there should be more room. The practice will expand once the tenants on the first floor move out.
