The hospital conducted a needs analysis prior to making the determination to open this clinic that showed an overwhelming need for more providers in the area.  The plans are to start with these providers and expand the number of family practice providers as well as specialty providers in the near future.

Health insurance plans that are currently approved to be utilized at Veterans Memorial Hospital will also be accepted in the clinic as well. The hospital’s electronic medical record system will also be integrated into this new clinic with access to electronic records from other medical facilities.
