The Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital will add a second location in Jefferson City. The second location will provide veterans with optometry and telemedicine services, which are not currently provided in Jefferson City.
“The new facility will allow veterans to receive telemedicine care without traveling all the way up to Columbia,” says Medical Center Director David Isaacks.
The new clinic will also be expanding the number of rooms provided in Jefferson City from 7 beds to 12.
“The new clinic will be right up the street and it will be an expansion of the space to give more veterans specialty care,” says Truman VA Spokesperson Jeff Hoelscher.
A ground breaking event was held Friday and construction is set to begin within the next 60 days. It is expected to be completed in December 2018.
