The Iowa City VA Health Care System is opening a new outpatient clinic in Burlington. The clinic, which will be located at 1000 N. Roosevelt Ave. Suite 7, will offer services and care to local veterans that may or may not have used the VA before.
'This clinic will be a little different from the other outpatient clinics in the area,” said Bryan Clark, a public affairs officer for the Iowa City VA. 'It is smaller and will house a primary care team, a mental health team, some pharmacy and blood draw services for patients needing lab work. Other services will still be offered at larger nearby clinics or at the Iowa City VA.”
As for the staff for the new clinic, Clark said that 'there will be five staff to start with: one primary care provider, one mental health provider, two registered nurses and a medical support assistant for scheduling and check-in.”
Henry County VA Director Roger Pittsenbarger voiced his support of the new clinic.
'I think it is definitely a good thing for Henry County veterans,” Pittsenbarger said. 'My commission that I report to was quite excited when I told them about it, and it's going to be good for our community.”
