Groundbreaking Set for New Goldsboro VA Clinic
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – VA and community officials will gather in Goldsboro Oct. 28 to break ground for the new Goldsboro Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC).
The ceremony will start at 1 p.m. at the clinic's new site, 2610 Hospital Road near Wayne Memorial Hospital. Congressman G.K. Butterfield and other local officials are expected to attend.
The new clinic will increase access to high quality VA health care for area Veterans once completed. The CBOC will have about 10,000 square feet of space and will initially host two Patient Aligned Care Teams, each one consisting of a health care provider, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse and a medical administrator. The clinic will also provide mental health and telehealth care.
The new clinic is the first in the Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network to be designed and built specifically to utilize the PACT system. A PACT is a partnership between the Veteran and their health care team to make sure they receive whole-person care.
This is personalized care to meet the Veteran's individual health care goals. The care team looks at all aspects of the Veteran's health with the emphasis on prevention and health promotion.
The Goldsboro CBOC is expected to open in the summer of 2012. The groundbreaking ceremony is open to the public.
