McKinney Courier-Gazette: Collin County VA clinic to open Friday in Plano
United States Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) invites North Texans to join him at the grand opening of Collin County’s new VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinic from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m. Sept. 16 at 3804 W. 15th St. in Plano.
The 10,000-square-foot clinic opens access to the fast-growing North Texas population and will be equipped to serve 6,000 veterans per year. The clinic will house five Patient-Aligned Care Teams (PACT) and will be able to provide primary care, mental health, telemedicine, laboratory and X-ray services.
The grand-opening event is free and open to the public.
“Many North Texas veterans and their families have been eagerly awaiting the opening of Plano’s new VA clinic since its location was announced last fall,” Johnson said. “This clinic has been a long time coming, and after years of working behind the scenes to see it established, I’m thrilled that this clinic is already helping our hometown heroes receive more efficient access to the healthcare they want, need and deserve.
The congressman added that he expects a large turnout at the event.
“This ceremony is a small but tangible way for us to thank all our veterans for their service and sacrifice to our great nation,” he said.
During the event, Johnson will be personally accepting nomination applications for his annual Congressional Veterans Commendation (CVC) ceremony to be held this fall. Sept. 16 is the last day to submit nominations.
