New Veterans Clinic Coming To Hazard

A new community based clinic for veterans is coming to Hazard in the spring of 2008.

The VA Clinic is part of a larger medical mall being built in Perry County. It will be located in the old Wal-Mart building in the Black Gold Shopping Center on Route 15. Veterans here in Perry County say they are relieved to have health care so close to home.

"Well we don't have to go all the way to Lexington. The closest place we can go here is Lexington or Johnson City, Tennessee, so it's good that we get one here," said Army Veteran Corbin Joseph.

There are nearly 9,000 veterans in Perry and its surrounding counties who will be able to use the clinic when construction is completed.
