Groundbreaking set for new Wilmington clinic

September 12, 2011

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – VA and community officials will gather at the coast Sept. 19 to break ground for the new Wilmington Multi-Specialty Outpatient Clinic.

The ceremony will start at 1 p.m. at the clinic's new site, 1725 Gardner Road near the intersection of Airport Road.  Congressman Mike McIntyre and other local officials are expected to attend.

The new clinic will greatly expand services for coastal Veterans once completed.  The MSOC will have about 85,000 square feet of space compared to the present clinic's 10,000 square feet, and will offer specialty care that hasn't been available through the local VA clinic in the past.

Construction is expected to take about 12 months to complete, and it will take about three months for the VA to furnish and set up equipment in the new facility so patients can be seen.

The ground breaking ceremony is open to the public.
