U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) today announced that a location has officially been selected to build the new Clare Veterans' clinic. Stabenow has led the fight to secure new VA health clinics in Michigan and strengthen veterans' access to health care working with veterans and community leaders across the state. Alpena Marc will be building the new clinic, which will be located in Vernon Township at 11775 N. Isabella Rd. This clinic will help ease the burden of veterans in Clare and the surrounding area who regularly make long and often difficult trips to VA hospitals in other parts of the state to receive basic medical services.
"This health clinic is a victory for Clare area veterans and their families," said Stabenow. "For too many of our veterans, long drives to clinics have prevented them from accessing the quality health care services they need. This clinic helps ensure our country keeps its promise to our veterans, who deserve nothing less than our unwavering support."
"We're thrilled that this clinic will be coming to the community of Clare," said Jeff Konczak, Alpena Marc LLC. "We want to thank Senator Stabenow for her leadership and support over the years to secure this clinic."
The contract was awarded by the U.S. Department of Veterans' Affairs.
