VA clinic breaks ground to offer modern care

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

The new Lubbock VA clinic, which will be on the corner of 4th and Indiana, is planned to be modern with new developments. 

As of now, the closest Veteran Affairs hospitals are in Amarillo and Big Spring. Both are more than 100 miles away from the Hub City. The new facility will provide more convenience to those who have fought for our country. 

"Some of the veterans are unable to go to Amarillo or Big Spring. Some of us can but it's better for us to have it here. It's a lot better and it's about time that we have something like this here," veteran Jerry Lucero said. 

Dalton Keel, the Clinical Service Chief, said the process of putting everything together was a group effort. 

"There are four generals and then a fifth general who really are the group that got this started. Congressman Neugebauer was instrumental in putting the legislation forward and made this come to fruition," Keel said. 

The hope is for the clinic to be finished by January of 2021.
