Chambliss, Isakson Announce Four New VA Clinics for Georgia
Will Be Located in Newnan, Brunswick, Milledgeville, Hinesville

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senators Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today announced that the Department of Veterans Affairs plans to open four new community-based outpatient clinics in Georgia. The clinics, which will enhance access to VA health care for veterans in the state, will be located in the cities of Newnan, Brunswick, Milledgeville and Hinesville.

"Our veterans deserve access to the very best medical care and services," said Chambliss, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. "The announcement of these new clinics is great news for veterans in our state who have served our nation with honor."

"This is outstanding news that Georgia will receive four new VA clinics to deliver to our veterans the level of VA care they deserve," Isakson said. "As a member of the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs, one of my top priorities is to make sure America takes care of the veterans who have dedicated their lives to serving our country."

The VA said it expects the facilities to become operational in the next 12 months. Local VA officials will keep communities and their veterans informed of milestones in the creation of these new community-based outpatient clinics.

These new facilities will be in addition to the 10 VA community-based outpatient clinics that already operate in Georgia.
