Good news for veterans in Southeastern Colorado

Nov 24, 2014

There’s good news for veterans in southeastern Colorado.  The VA Medical Clinic now has a permanent location Lamar reported the Prowers Journal.  When the Prowers Medial Clinic closed over a year and a half ago, a mobile trailer was brought in as a stop-gap measure. 

The clinic is staffed with a nurse practitioner, nurses, and a social worker.    

Expanded care is available using a telehealth system.  With technology-- a two-way video screen, attached diagnostic tools, and a camera, a medical provider can talk with a patient, review pictures, and help make a diagnosis and decide treatment. 

There will still be instances where patients have to travel to Colorado Springs or Denver for care.
