Veterans Affairs and UMass Chan celebrate ribbon cutting of new community outpatient clinic

The VA Central Western Massachusetts Healthcare System and UMass Chan Medical School hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Monday, Nov. 8, to celebrate the opening of a new 48,000-square-foot community-based outpatient clinic for veterans located on the Medical School’s campus in Worcester.

The clinic will provide veterans with access to primary and specialty health care in a new space designed for patient-aligned care teams. It augments services provided at the VA’s Plantation Street clinic and folds in services that had been provided at Lincoln Street and Lake Avenue clinics. The new site is equipped to serve 16,800 enrolled veterans in Worcester County and will open to its first patients Dec. 15.

U.S. Veterans Affairs Secretary Denis McDonough traveled from Washington, D.C., to celebrate the opening of the new clinic. He was joined by UMass Chan Medical School Chancellor Michael F. Collins, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Rep. Jim McGovern, Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito, Massachusetts VA Secretary Cheryl Lussier Poppe, regional VA Healthcare leaders Ryan Lilly and Duane Gill, and Kristin Mattocks, PhD, MPH, professor of population & quantitative health sciences and associate dean for veterans affairs, along with state lawmakers, city leaders, local veterans and distinguished guests.
