In a release sent earlier today, Georgia’s Third District Congressman, Drew Ferguson (R), praised the Department of Veterans Affairs for their plans to build a new clinic in Pike County, Georgia.
According to the release, Ferguson voted for the Congressional authorization of the VA Choice and Quality Employment Act of 2017 which included the new clinic.
“Our veterans sacrificed so much for our country, too often including their own health. We should work to ensure they have timely accessible care in their own communities. I was proud to vote to authorize funding for this new clinic.”
The announcement also stated that “the new facility would provide VA outpatient primary care and mental health services to eligible veterans. Officials plan to lease a new, approximately 49,000 square foot building with about 350 parking spaces.”
