Guam – The new Veterans Affairs Clinic opened its doors today [Tuesday] in Agana Heights, without fanfare or ceremony.
But by mid-morning, the new 6-thousand square foot facility was already bustling with veterans seeking care. It is right next to Naval Hospital, but it is outside the fence.
Some veterans who spoke to PNC News said they welcomed the convenience of not having to go through security to get to the out-patient clinic.
“It is better than the old facility over at Naval Hospital,” said Pete Taitano of Ordot. “Anything that helps make it more convenient is good for veterans,” said Norbert Mundo of Rota.
The new facility cost $4-point-5 million dollars to build.
