August 12, 2016

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The Department of Veterans affairs will build a new clinic in Mobile to serve southwest Alabama’s more than 50,000 veterans.

Al.com (http://bit.ly/2aMOmm0 ) reports that Rep. Bradley Byrne said in a statement Thursday that the new clinic will replace the current clinic on Spring Hill Avenue in Mobile.

Byrne says he has repeatedly called on the department to move forward with the project. The congressman also says he will provide oversight throughout the construction process to ensure the project remains on schedule.

Mobile Mayor Sandy Stimpson says the new clinic is long overdue.

The location of the new facility has not been announced.
