Byrne: Mobile Finally Getting New VA Clinic
Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) today celebrated the announcement of a new VA clinic in Mobile. The announcement comes after Rep. Byrne has made a new VA clinic one of his top priorities in Congress.
The new VA clinic will replace the current, outdated clinic on Spring Hill Avenue in Mobile.
Byrne said: “This announcement is music to the ears of the over 50,000 veterans who live in Southwest Alabama. Since being elected to Congress, I have repeatedly called on the VA to move forward with this project. It is a shame the process took as long as it did, but the new facility will be able to better serve those who have given so much to our country.
“The work is not done. I will continue to provide diligent oversight throughout the construction process to ensure the project remains on schedule. We must also continue pushing for reforms at the VA to ensure accountability and promote greater choices for our veterans.”
Congressman Byrne has held meetings with the VA to discuss the need for a new clinic in Mobile. He also sent a letter to VA Secretary Robert McDonald requesting an update on the project and demanding progress after the project stalled out.
More information on the new clinic will be released once it is made available.
