Veterans Get Increased Access to World-Class Health Care

 

          Fayetteville, NC – The Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shinseki’s announcement today of a new Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Lee County continues the excitement at the Fayetteville VA Medical Center with expansion of additional CBOCs and Health Care Centers to reinforce commitment to providing access to high-quality care for Veterans.  
         “We are very pleased the VA elected to approve construction of a new CBOC in Lee County for our Veterans,” said James Galkowski, Fayetteville VAMC associate director of operations.   “Our first priority will be to determine the best site location in Lee County to ensure our Veterans have better access to quality health care that is close to their home.  We will continue to provide additional information on the estimated project completion date on our web site and in future media releases.  We look forward to continuing our dedication and commitment to serve our Veterans and ensure they receive the best medical and mental health care they have earned.”
