SW TIMES-RECORD: Senator: Fort Smith VA Clinic needs expansion

Written by Press Release

August 23, 2019

A second push for more space at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs clinic in Fort Smith is underway by an Arkansas lawmaker.

U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Arkansas, said Thursday at the Fort Smith VA Outpatient Clinic the need for more space is long overdue.

While many veterans in the area make the drive to the VA facility in Fayetteville for certain care, there are about 15,000 veterans in Crawford, Sebastian and Franklin counties eligible to use the Fort Smith facility.

“Here in Fort Smith we have a situation, for several years now, where they’ve been trying to increase the size and the ability to do more things,” Boozman said. “For one reason or another this is several years behind … We’ve been working on that. Here we just really want to get everybody together and say ‘Look we’ve got to get this done.’”
