Nassau County Legislator Denise Ford is proud to announce the grand opening of the new VA Clinic of East Meadow at Nassau University Medical Center. This new Veterans Clinic, which has been fourteen years in the making and finally passed with the help of County Executive Ed Mangano and Legislator Norma Gonsalves, will provide state-of-the-art medical care for Nassau County’s veterans.
“Our veterans deserve to have the best care available to them,” said Legislator Ford. “This new clinic will be better suited to serve their needs.” The Mental Health section of the Clinic opened on March 29, 2011, and the Primary Care Clinic opened March 30, 2011.
Special thanks were given to NUMC President and CEO Arthur Gianelli for donating the 11,000 square foot building on the NUMC campus for the new clinic location. The new clinic contains a state-of-the-art triage center, 14 new exam rooms, and exemplary doctors dedicated solely to Nassau veterans. The clinic is expected to serve 5,000 veterans every year.
