St. Augustine – Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) issued the following statement in response to the completion of and beginning of patient care at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in St. Augustine, Florida:

“After years of delays, I am glad that the Department of Veterans Affairs has completed an interim clinic in St. Augustine to serve the more than 5,000 veterans that rely on the VA clinic for care. It is critically important that our veterans receive uninterrupted service as the St. Augustine CBOC transitions from their previous location. Rest assured, I will continue to monitor and conduct oversight over the progress towards a permanent facility.”?
