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.
