Ribbon cutting this weekend for new VA clinic

Bellevue, NE – The VA of Nebraska-western Iowa is planning an official opening of its new clinic this Saturday.

The Bellevue clinic is located inside the health center at Offutt Air Force Base. It's anticipated that more than four thousand veterans will receive care at the new health clinic.

VA spokesman Will Ackerman says Offutt is a good location for a clinic because many retired veterans live near the Air Force Base. He says the new clinic will provide primary health care services.

The public is invited to tour the new clinic at 10:30 AM Saturday.
