A ribbon cutting ceremony was held, May 17, 2022, with the building owners, leadership and staff present. Dr. Kathy Lewis, Chief, Sensory and Rehabilitation Service was the honorary person to cut the ribbon. The ceremony had limited attendance due to the high rates of COVID-19 transmissions and limited gatherings policy. “I am excited about the new clinic and its state-of-the-art technology we can offer our Veterans,” stated Dr. Lewis. We have been planning and working diligently over the last couple years to ensure we stay on the cutting edge and meet our Veterans’ well-deserved needs.”
