HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – The Department of Veterans Affairs will soon open its new clinic in Huntsville.  Wednesday, city leaders and veterans groups marked the occasion with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The new building brings the Madison/Decatur and Huntsville outpatient clinics under one roof.

The new facility is located at 500 Markaview Road NW. It’s between Clearview Cancer Institute and Butler High School.

The ceremony began at 11 a.m.  Tours of the new clinic will be provided following the program. The public is welcome, and all veterans are encouraged to come see the facility.

It’s important to note, the ceremony doesn’t mark the opening of the clinic for business. Patients won’t be seen at the Huntsville VA Clinic until the first week in November.

The new 47,800-square-foot facility will provide primary care, mental health, women’s health, audiology, optometry, radiology and will have an onsite pharmacy.
