ALBANY, GA (WALB) -
The V-A clinic in Albany maybe packing up and moving to a new facility.
Officials who are pushing for the move believe it will improve some of the services.
Veterans in Albany are looking to make changes to where they receive healthcare and most of the responses so far have been positive.
The V-A may be moving to the Marine Corps Logistics Base. It was the topic of discussion at the veterans monthly meeting at the American Legion Post 30 on Gillionville Road.
The main reason for the move is improved quality of healthcare services.
John Goldman, Director of Veterans Affairs in Dublin thinks it will be a good transition.
"Looking at it right now looks good. We think it's a great opportunity to serve not only veterans in this area, but the Marines as well," said John Goldman.
Bennie Wilson is also looking forward to the move. He's hoping for a bigger facility and better location.
"Just the possibility of what this clinic can do on a base is more efficient. More programs that the veterans can see, more doctors and it'll probably benefit Albany a great deal too. I think it will be a great idea for the local veterans that cannot afford to go to Dublin on a day-to-day basis," said Wilson.
Goldman says there will be no disruption of healthcare services and hopes to make a decision on the move in the next few months.
