Expanded Hours Planned At Potter County Veterans’ Clinic

From Potter County Today

us-deptofveteransaffairs-seal-largeExpanded hours will soon be in effect at the Potter County Veterans Clinic. The county has partnered with the Bath (N.Y.) VA Medical Center to provide medical services locally. The clinic will be open on Mondays and Thursdays from 8 am to 4:30 pm. The VA also plans to periodically bring medical specialists to Potter County facility through the use of a mobile clinic, complete with examination/treatment rooms.

Potter County Veterans’ Primary Care Office and Outreach Center opened last July at the county’s Maple View property (24 Buffalo Street), just off Rt. 872, south of the Rt. 6 intersection in east Coudersport. The center is staffed by personnel trained to process new enrollments, update patient information, conduct screenings and deliver primary care and/or referrals, depending on each individual veteran’s needs. More information is available at (814) 260-9342. Appointments can also be scheduled by calling that number.

During the clinic’s first year of operation, more than 300 military veterans from Potter County enrolled for care and more are being added to the rolls each week. The VA has launched a concerted effort to reach out to veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq. Potter County’s total veteran population is about 1,700, and approximately 800 of them are eligible for most VA services based on income and other criteria.
