Come and Read It Report
I am pleased to share some great news with you. The Central Texas Veterans Health Care System (CTVHCS) is expanding its services for veterans with two new clinics. One in Copperas Cove and one in Killeen.
During my tenure in Congress, my top priority has been fighting for better care for veterans in Texas’ 25th district and across the country. With the rapidly growing number of veterans living in the Central Texas region, meeting the needs of our vets is a challenge that we must address immediately.
Over the last few months, I have been working alongside Congressman John Carter to insist that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) expand services and continue to improve coverage for our veterans in Central Texas. Together, we urged VA Secretary Wilkie to focus more resources where we need them most, right in the heart of Texas.
The efforts of many have paid off and the over 37,000 veterans in the Killeen and Copperas Cove area will now have more convenient and accessible options for their healthcare services. These two new locations will each provide primary care services for up to 7,200 veterans in the area.
Our veterans have sacrificed so much for our great country and they deserve to be taken care of now that they are home. I am proud to work on behalf of our brave veterans and am thrilled to announce this update to the community.
In God we trust,
Member of Congress
