VA Medical Center reaches out
Second doctor, possible expansion ahead for Statesboro clinic
W 100715 VA TOWN HALL 01
22-year U.S. Army veteran Craig McGlone, center, tries to recall the details of applying for migraine treatment as he and Vietnam vet Lloyd Dunlap, left, ask for guidance from VA Transition Patient Advocate Reginald Harrison during Wednesday's VA town hall meeting and information session sponsored by the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center at Statesboro's American Legion Post 90. McGlone suffered a traumatic brain injury from an IED while serving in Iraq and leads a local PTSD support group.
Officials from the Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center in Augusta revealed during a town hall meeting here Wednesday that the center’s Statesboro clinic, which got its first onsite physician in May, will soon add a second doctor on a temporary basis. Officials are also considering adding space at the clinic, but said that approval to expand or relocate is at least a year away, and probably two. About 50 people attended the meeting the VA Medical Center held at American Legion Dexter Allen Post 90.
