VA clinic opens satellite office for University of Alabama community
The University of Alabama opened a new Tuscaloosa Veterans Affairs Medical Center satellite clinic on campus today.
The Division of Student Life donated $75,000 to help open the clinic, while an additional $75,000 was donated by the Alabama Marines Foundation, the Campus Veterans Association, and David and Linda Ford.
The clinic offers support to UA faculty, staff and students who are veterans and eligible for VA health care.
Veteran and Military Affairs Assistant Director Brad Campbell said the opening of the clinic further supports veterans and active-duty military personnel who study or work at UA.
“The Alabama Marines Foundation Veteran and Military Health Clinic will give VA eligible UA students, faculty and staff a convenient location for routine health care with minimal impact on their schedules,” Campbell said in a statement.
The satellite office is open for health care appointments Mondays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and medical staff from the Tuscaloosa VA Medical Center will see patients for regular check-ups and exams.
