FRANKLIN - The Department of Veterans Affairs has approved a new community based 0utpatient clinic in Franklin to provide health care to veterans west of Asheville.

The outpatient medical clinic will provide both primary and mental health services to an estimated 3,200 veterans each year.

The new clinic will serve as an extension of the existing VA Medical Center in Asheville that provides specialized care to veterans.

“This new clinic will allow veterans to receive medical care much closer to where they live without having to make the long trip to Asheville every time they need to see a doctor,” U.S. Rep. Charles Taylor, R-Brevard, said in a statement.
