BREAKING NEWS: VA Clinic to Open in Pike County

WASHINGTON DC - Pike County will be the future home of a Veterans Adminstration (VA) Clinic in the near future.

According to the office of Congressman Drew Ferguson, the Atlanta VA Health Care System has received funding approval as part of the 2018 congressional budget for a new 49,175 SF Multi-Specialty VA Clinic to be located in Pike County, Georgia.

Atlanta VA is working closely with VHA’s Office of Real Property within the Office of Capital Asset Management Engineering & Support (OCAMES) to begin in FY18-Q1 the procurement process for this new major lease.

The anticipated opening for this new clinic is summer of 2022.

Update 9.28.17

Congressman Drew Ferguson (R-Ga.) applauded the announcement by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) of its plans to build a new clinic in Pike County, Georgia to bring care to veterans in the Third District. Ferguson supported Congressional authorization for the new clinic that was included in the VA Choice and Quality Employment Act of 2017, passed by the House on July 28. He released the following statement:

“Our veterans sacrificed so much for our country, too often including their own health. We should work to ensure they have timely accessible care in their own communities. I was proud to vote to authorize funding for this new clinic.”

The new facility would provide VA outpatient primary care and mental health services to eligible veterans. Officials plan to lease a new, approximately 49,000 square foot building with about 350 parking spaces.
