 Plano, TX – On Friday, September 16th, 2016, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) invites North Texans to join him at the Grand Opening of Plano’s NEW VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinic.  The 10,000 square foot clinic opens access to the fast-growing North Texas population and will be equipped to serve 6,000 veterans per year.  The CBOC will house five Patient-Aligned Care Teams (PACT) and will be able to provide primary care, mental health, telemedicine, laboratory, and x-ray services.

The VA Grand Opening is free and open to the public.  Press is encouraged to attend.                   

“Many North Texas veterans and their families have been eagerly awaiting the opening of Plano’s new VA clinic since its location was announced last fall,” said Johnson.  “This clinic has been a long time coming, and after years of working behind the scenes to see it established, I’m thrilled that this clinic is already helping our hometown heroes receive more efficient access to the healthcare they want, need, and deserve.  I look forward to celebrating the clinic’s Grand Opening later this month, and I hope to see a large community turnout at the event.  This ceremony is a small but tangible way for us to thank ALL our veterans for their service and sacrifice to our Great Nation.”

While at the event, Congressman Johnson will also be personally accepting nomination applications for his annual Congressional Veterans Commendation Ceremony (CVC) to be held later this fall.  This day (September 16th) will be the last day to submit nominations.  Anyone is able to nominate a veteran who resides in the Third District for this prestigious award.  For more information about the CVC and to nominate a deserving veteran you know, visit the Constituent Services tab on Johnson’s website: www.samjohnson.house.gov.  You may also call the Plano Office at (469) 304-0382.
