After several years pushing for a local VA clinic to be established in Collin County for North Texas’ many veterans, I am pleased to announce the location for the new VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) will be at 3804 West. 15th Street, Plano, Texas 75075. I know many of our veterans and their families have been eagerly waiting to hear where our new VA clinic would be – in fact it’s one of the questions people ask me the most – so I’m absolutely thrilled to announce the location has been decided. The new Collin County VA Clinic will make a huge difference for veterans and their loved ones because they’ll finally be able to receive high-quality care closer to home. This is a huge win for North Texas, and I couldn’t be happier for our community and our hometown heroes.
"The new Plano Clinic will allow more Veterans in North Texas to receive the timely, compassionate, and high quality health care they have earned and deserve," said Jeff Milligan, VA North Texas Health Care System Director. "I would like to personally thank Representative Sam Johnson for his leadership in making this project a reality for our Nation's heroes."
This new clinic is something I’ve been working on for a long time behind the scenes, and it’s great to see this has finally come full circle. It was the right thing to do, and our hard work is paying off. We’re looking forward to the groundbreaking in early fall and I know North Texas veterans will breathe a sigh of relief when this clinic finally opens its doors sometime in the spring!
The 10,000 square foot clinic will open up 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.
