House approves Chattanooga VA expansion

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The House of Representatives approved funding for an expansion to the Chattanooga VA clinic.

The legislation will fund a new lease for a multi-specialty community based outpatient clinic in Chattanooga.

Veterans will receive more timely care as well as specialized care in dental, laboratory, work therapy, geriatrics, and eye care.

This expansion of the VA clinic in Hamilton County is the fourth huge victory for veterans in the third district this year.

"This is a much needed expansion in Hamilton County and yet another victory for veterans in East Tennessee," says Congressman Chuck Fleischmann. "The men and women who bravely protected our country must be taken care of when they return from the battlefields, and I am confident the expanded clinic will greatly advance medical care for veterans throughout the third district."
