And that's exactly what the VA has done with the opening of a Community-Based Outpatient Clinic in Sikeston, said Glenn A. Costie, chief executive officer of the VA Hospital in Poplar Bluff during a Friday ribbon cutting ceremony at the Sikeston facility. "This clinic represents those efforts," he said.
Services at the Sikeston clinic began on Dec. 26, about one year after it was announced. Costie noted that this clinic not only offers primary care services, but more specialized services, such as audiology, mental health and limited radiology.
"Right now, we're offering a mobile radiology unit, but it will become permanent if there is a good response," said Costie.
