Marshall on hand for VA clinic grand opening
(JUNCTION CITY, Kan.) - Today, Congressman Roger Marshall, M.D., participated in the grand opening of the Lieutenant General Richard J. Seitz VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic.
The Clinic offers increased staff and specialty care to provide a higher level of health care for veterans close to home.
"Providing quality, easily-accessible health care for our veterans has always been, and will continue to be, a top priority for me," Congressman Marshall said. "This clinic is a wonderful demonstration of our commitment to men and woman who have served our country. We're proud to have his clinic located in Junction City. Of the 204,538 veterans in the State of Kansas, around 22,000 live in the Central Flint Hills Region. This will be an important resource for those heroes."
“I’m thrilled to hear that the veterans of the Junction City area will now have access to top notch treatment at this new outpatient clinic," Congressman Phil Roe, M.D., Chairman of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, said. "I’d like to send my congratulations to the VA Eastern Kansas Health Care System for their success in opening this clinic, and I thank Rep. Marshall for his continued work on behalf of our nation’s heroes.”
The Clinic is located at 1169 Southwind Drive just south of Ash Street at Highway 77.
