An official from the Department of Veterans Affairs has helped a VA health care center in central Ohio mark the recent expansion of its women's clinic.
The associate director of the VA's national Center for Women Veterans spoke Tuesday at the ceremony at the Columbus VA Ambulatory Care Center clinic. Betty Moseley Brown said afterward that she expects the expanded facility to draw even more female veterans. Brown says women in the 45-to-65 age range make up the fastest-growing group of female veterans turning to the VA for health care.
About 2,000 female veterans get health care at the center.
The expansion has nearly doubled the clinic's size. It offers primary and female-specific health care. Mental-health care and disease prevention and screening also are available.
