Veterans Affairs to Reopen Outpatient Clinic in Maxwelton, West Virginia
MAXWELTON, W.Va. (AP) A veterans outpatient clinic in southern West Virginia that’s been closed since last fall is set to reopen Friday.
Media outlets report that Department of Veterans Affairs officials announced the clinic’s reopening on Monday.
The VA initially closed the Greenbrier County Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Maxwelton in June 2014 after several employees became ill. The clinic later reopened but closed again in October 2014 after similar problems were reported.
Beckley VA Medical Center director Karin L. McGraw says design corrections to improve the clinic’s air quality have been completed.
The clinic serves about 2,400 veterans in Greenbrier, Monroe, Pocahontas and Summers counties in West Virginia and in Allegany County in Virginia.
