New VA Clinic Breaks Ground
MCALLEN — A new clinic, for veterans, is in the works to replace the old one. The nearly 60,000 square foot building will be twice the size of the current location and the expansion will create more than two hundred construction jobs. Congressman Henry Cuellar is pushing for a future VA hospital and stated, "We got this new clinic coming up, we got the new center there in Harlingen, all we need to do is add an emergency room to that new center. I'm hoping that one of these days we can do that, where we add an emergency room plus some new beds there, we can turn that into a hospital."
