    STORY: Veterans Choice Program doesn't help vets struggling with old ER bills

    A new VA clinic is coming to Clay County, according to a media release from the office of Representative Ted Yoho.

    Yoho announced Wednesday morning the award of a 10-year lease on a new VA clinic in Middleburg. 

    The new primary care facility will be located at 400 College Drive, officials said. 

    Services will include the following:

    • primary care
    • mental health services
    • lab draws 
    • select specialty care via telehealth

    The clinic is projected to attract approximately 4,500 new veterans and serve more than 11,000 veteran enrollees in the following years. 

    Construction timeline and activation schedules have yet to be released. 

    Full statement from Yoho below: 

    “I am absolutely thrilled to be able to share today that Clay County is getting their clinic. This project has been a priority for our team and I want to commend all our stakeholders who helped make this happen. There has been such a demand and a need for this project and I want to thank the VA for their efforts on this project. We cannot do enough for our veterans and look forward to the increased care and service that will be provided out of this clinic. While today we celebrate this milestone, we still have work to do and will be working closely with the awardee and the VA in design and planning meetings to make sure we get this to the finish line as quickly as possible. This is a major win for Clay County but also for all Veterans in the region. This is a project that we were not willing to give up on and we refused to let this chance slip away.”
