VA adding 4 outpatient clinics in Oklahoma

ENID, Okla. (AP) - The Department of Veterans Affairs will build four new outpatient clinics in Oklahoma, including two in communities that are home to Air Force bases.

The new community clinics are to open within the next 15 months in Altus, Enid, Jay and Craig County. They are part of an initiative to open 44 new VA clinics in 21 states.

2 of the Oklahoma clinics will be going in near Air Force bases in Altus and Enid, where Vance Air Force Base is located. The two other clinics will be built in the northeastern corner of the state.

There are already VA community clinics in Ardmore and Ponca City and at the Fort Sill Army post in Lawton.

Veterans Affairs also has medical centers in Muskogee and Oklahoma City, and outpatient clinics in Konawa and Tulsa.
