Veterans "super" clinic planned

Brighton, N.Y. - Wounded servicemen and women in the Rochester area have long used the outpatient Veterans Affairs clinic on Westfall Road. Within three years, they should have a new, more spacious building to receive their treatments, according to the VA. 

I think it would be great because veterans like myself, we kind of need that kind of space, said Jamarr Nathan, a veteran who served in the Marine Corp.

A $14.6 million state-of-the-art facility is expected to be built either in Henrietta or Brighton, according to a map of the site boundaries provided by Congresswoman Louise Slaughters office.

Well probably be leasing or building a new clinic because the current facility on Westfall Road, weve just really outgrown, said Dan Ryan, spokesman for the VA Medical Center which operates the Brighton location.

The clinic was really outgrown by the time they opened it, said Slaughter of the space limits at the Westfall Road facility. Parking has continually been a problem there.

The University of Rochester Medical Center which provides some resources to the VA clinic is in talks with the federal government about adding new specialists and services, according to a spokesperson for URMC.

It is expected to be built by 2016.
