Possible VA satellite clinic in Rawlins

Rawlins, WY – A group of veterans is seeking to establish a part-time Veterans Affairs satellite clinic at the Memorial Hospital of Carbon County's outpatient clinic in Rawlins.

Linda Wagner of the Carbon County Task Force for Veterans says it's a hardship for veterans to get to the Cheyenne VA hospital.

Wagner's father is World War II veteran. She says the Rawlins hospital is supportive of the idea.

She says the hospital outpatient clinic's calendar has enough openings to host the clinic once or twice a month.

The proposal has been made informally to the VA in Cheyenne, and Wagner said the reception there has been positive so far.

Details need to be worked out between the VA and the Rawlins Hospital.
