Asheville and Salisbury VAMCs to co-host veteran town hall
Veterans are invited to attend a town hall meeting at Catawba Valley Community College March 12 from 7 to 8 p.m. to discuss the upcoming realignment of the Hickory Community Based Outpatient Clinic from the Salisbury VA Medical Center to the Asheville VA Medical Center.
The town hall will take place in the East Wing Auditorium of the main Catawba Valley Community College campus at 2550 U.S. Highway 70 Southeast in Hickory. The meeting will be co-hosted by Asheville VAMC Director Cynthia Breyfogle and Salisbury VAMC Director Kaye Green.
The Hickory CBOC opened in its second and current location, at 2440 Century Place Southeast, in June 2011. The clinic provides primary care, along with mental health, audiology and optometry services to veterans from Alexander, Burke, Caldwell, Catawba, Iredell and Lincoln counties.
Veterans who would like more information about the town hall or the realignment of the Hickory CBOC can contact the Asheville VAMC at 828-298-7911, ext. 3560, or 800-932-6408. If calling via the 800 number, select option 1 for the main facility, then extension 3560.
