Amarillo VA Health Care System held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of its new location of the Childress VA Clinic on May 9, 2023.

“We are excited to open this new location for our Childress area Veterans,” Dr. Rodney Gonzalez, Amarillo VA Health Care System Director said. “The improvements and additional space will continue to provide outstanding care for our area Veterans who deserve no less.”

The new Childress VA Clinic is located at 2305 Avenue F, NW, Ste. 900, Childress, Texas, 79201 and provides 3,000 square feet of administrative and clinical space for eligible Veterans to receive health care.

Veterans, community stakeholders, and congressional representatives attended the ceremony, followed by a resource fair with staff from various services and programs, including VA health care Eligibility and Enrollment, Suicide Prevention, Women’s Health, Whole Health, and the PACT Act.

Representative Ronny Jackson (TX-13) said, “During my time in Congress and as a Veteran myself, I am committed to ensuring Veterans have access to the critical care that they need, especially in rural areas like my district. I am glad to see the VA prioritize Veterans in Childress with the opening of this brand-new outpatient clinic.”

Leadership at Amarillo VA HCS expect the new Childress VA Clinic to bring a new level of care to Veterans in the eastern Texas Panhandle, continuing their commitment to provide world class health care to Veterans.

Amarillo VA HCS provides Veterans with health care services at five locations serving northern Texas and eastern New Mexico. Facilities include Thomas E. Creek VA Medical Center in Amarillo, three community-based outpatient clinics in Childress, Dalhart, and Lubbock, Texas, and one in Clovis, New Mexico.
