BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

The Ralph H Johnson VA Medical Center at the Naval Hospital Beaufort celebrated the grand opening of their expanded clinic space for the VA's community based outpatient clinic.  

The new space will allow the clinic to treat 1,200 more veterans than they currently do. 

The VA is also adding the Telehealth program to the clinic, which will allow veterans to communicate with doctors in other locations without having to go see the doctor in person. 

"This is one of the premier medical centers in the entire country in the VA and also one of the premier clinics here," said Tonya Lobbestael, public affairs officers for the Ralph H Johnson VA Medical Center. "We really want veterans to know that they have these benefits here, so come and see us." 

The clinic also offers mobile MRI specialty testing, so veterans can go there instead of having to drive to Charleston. 

If you are interested in taking advantage of any of the services provided by the clinic, call them at 1.888.878.6884 to start the enrollment process and make an appointment.
