GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The newest and among the largest VA clinics in the nation is set to open in Green Bay on Monday.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Thusday for hundreds of veterans.
The new $60 million Milo C. Huempfner VA Outpatient Clinic is more than 20 times the size of the old clinic in Green Bay.
Around 95% of care for veterans can be done on site, eliminating the need for thousands of veterans to travel down to Milwaukee.
The clinic has been a long time coming, with the VA department looked at over 50 sites for a new clinic.
Around 20,000 veterans are expected to visit the clinic annually.
The new VA clinic is located at 2851 University Avenue.
