For Veterans in Springfield, access to healthcare is getting easier.

The Veterans Affairs Commission is opening up a new clinic in Springfield on the first week of December.

The VA says its only finishing up the final details of moving into the building including installing IT systems, furniture, phones, and files. They say that new patients could be walking through the doors as early as Monday.

The clinic is located on West Republic Rd and will save Veterans a two hour trip to the nearest clinic in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
