Contract Awarded For New VA Clinic In Greenville

A new Veterans Affairs health clinic is on track to open in eastern North Carolina in 2013.

U.S. Reps. G.K. Butterfield and Walter Jones said the VA awarded a contract earlier this week to build the new clinic in Greenville.

The clinic will provide a number of special services, including optometry, podiatry and mental health services. Officials say it can provide services to 20,000 veterans. The current clinic can serve just 8,000 vets.

Gilbane Development Company won the contract to build the new clinic, which is scheduled to open in late 2013.

    Thank you Congressman Jones and all your staff. We have needed this for years and have felt neglected. We appreciate what you have done, and will do for the veterans of Eastern N.C. Thanks again. Without what we did for the United States of America, we might not be free. Thanks again. I feel like you are thanking us, the veterans who have helped to keep our country safe and free through many years of jeopardy. Be sure to mention this to your staff who have spent many tireless hours to help us.
