Mikulski, Cardin Fight To Keep VA Clinic

July 11th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Barbara A. Mikulski, together with Congressman Whip Steny Hoyer (all D-Md.), have sent a letter to Veterans Affairs (VA) Secretary Robert McDonald expressing their concern over the forthcoming closure of the Greenbelt, Md., Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in northern Prince George’s County. The space that houses the VA-leased clinic will be sold by the private owner at the end of September 2015. The VA has yet to find a suitable replacement CBOC in the immediate area. In FY14, the clinic had more than 6,400 encounters, of which more than 1,700 were unique. Currently, the clinic is at maximum capacity due to the high concentration and needs of veterans in the area.
