(Washington, DC) - A new report put out by the Department of Veterans Affairs may pave the way for a new veterans medical clinic locally.
Last week the VA released its Asset and Infrastructure Review, which assess veterans’ services and facilities around the country.
Among the recommendations for the Chicago area and northwest Indiana is a community-based outpatient clinic in the LaPorte area to “improve access to primary care and outpatient mental health.”
The report suggests that LaPorte County is in an area of growing need. According the VA, La Porte County is projected to have over 2,700 veteran enrollees by 2029.
The Asset and Infrastructure Review will go before Congress for further consideration.
