ABERDEEN, S.D. – In September, the Sioux Falls Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Health Care System broke ground on a new outreach clinic in Aberdeen. The clinic, located at 909 South Lamont Street (behind Target), will be larger than the current one by nearly 2,000 square feet. This additional space will make it possible for them to offer more services for veterans in primary care, mental health care, and telehealth.
The Sioux Falls VA estimates that over 2,500 veterans received care at the Aberdeen clinic in 2017. This includes veterans from not only Brown County, but several surrounding counties as well. Currently, there is no timeline for when the clinic is expected to be complete. // — Jenny Roth
