Construction of a new Veterans Affairs clinic in Goldsboro is expected to begin this fall after a bid to build the 10,000-square-foot clinic was awarded to Construction Managers of Goldsboro.

Veterans living in Wayne and surrounding counties are expected to enjoy more access to VA health care when the new Community Based Outpatient Clinic opens next spring.

The new clinic will be located at 2610 Hospital Road.

The clinic will be an extension of the Fayetteville VA Medical Center. With approximately 10,000 square feet, the clinic is expected to provide primary care and mental health services to about 5,000 veterans.

Veterans currently enrolled at the Fayetteville VA Medical Center, who live in close proximity to the new clinic, will be given priority for care there.

The Fayetteville VA Medical Center will review its list of veterans currently enrolled who may benefit from receiving their primary care at the new clinic and inform of the option.

Construction Managers was awarded a five-year lease with five one-year options.
