OAKWOOD, Ga. (AP) - The U.S. Veterans Administration is opening a larger community-based outpatient clinic in Oakwood, allowing some veterans in northeast Georgia to get their treatment closer to home.
The Times of Gainesville reports (http://bit.ly/1aZdzqU) that the new 18,000-square-foot clinic recently opened off Thurmon Tanner Parkway.
In addition to a population surge over the years, officials say the Hall County area has seen a spike in the number of aging veterans who need care.
