Gloucester’s VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic to Expand

Expansion to Include New Services for Local Veterans

Bedford, MA – Today, the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital (Bedford VAMC) announced its plans to strengthen and expand the Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Gloucester.

“This expansion demonstrates that VA is committed to providing local Veterans the world-class care they deserve and are entitled to,” said Christine Croteau, Bedford VAMC’s Acting Director. “The additional space will support many needs for the Gloucester area Veterans. One benefit of the expansion is that it will allow for expansion of the use of tele-technology enhancing Veterans access to a variety of services.”

“Shortly after being elected to Congress, I worked with the VA to open this clinic in Gloucester and I’m particularly proud that Veterans in our district do not have to travel farther than 15 miles to receive care. Recently, the VA correctly assessed that the clinic must expand to meet the needs of Veterans, particularly women Veterans and those who are interested in accessing mental health services. I communicated to the VA how important it is to all of us that the expanded clinic remain located in Gloucester. I look forward to attending the upcoming Veterans forum and continuing to work with Director Croteau, Mark Nestor, and other stakeholders in the months ahead,” said Congressman John Tierney.

“The American Legion Post #3 is proud to support the interests of our area Veterans,” said Attorney Mark Nestor, Commander for the Gloucester American Legion. “I encourage Veterans and our community to attend, provide feedback and learn about the enhancements in store for Gloucester based VA care.”

In order to appropriately expand and meet the critical needs of local Veterans, the CBOC will be relocating from its existing site to another one in Gloucester. As this expansion and relocation process begins, the Bedford VAMC is partnering with Congressman John Tierney and local advocates, including Mark Nestor, to convene a public forum this month to give Veterans and their families the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the expansion and relocation of the Gloucester CBOC.
