The Texarkana veterans clinic is also increasing involvement in the community. 

The outpatient clinic celebrated joining the Chamber of Commerce this afternoon with a ribbon cutting. 

The V.A. clinic moved from the Texas side to the Arkansas side in 2003 and currently provides primary care, mental health and telehealth services to about 4,800 veterans. 

“They served our country and we need to pay that back. And so that’s what we try to do here, is to ensure that they have the best care given that they can in our community,” said Kenda Watson, administrative officer for the clinic.
 
Officials say the V.A. clinic sees about 2,700 appointments a month and volunteers are still needed to help drive veterans to their medical appointments. If you’d like to volunteer, please contact the clinic at (870) 779-2752.
