I heard from a pretty reliable source that they are going to build a VA Hospital in Blairsville. Has anyone heard about this?

Affirmative. Ground has been purchased and is being cleared. Good news for all the vets in our area. The number of vets in this area is astounding.

I hesitate to say where it is being built because I don't remember what I was told about the location.

The sign reads "Blairsville Veterans Hospital." Does that mean VA or a private hospital for veterans?
YES

it is a va clinic, not a va hospital..open monday thru friday, and if you intend to change to the blairsville clinic, you will have to use the va hospital in atlanta for any surgery, vision care exams,etc. the clinic is if you are sick or need regular check ups and they do blood tests there.

Alright, so if you are dying, hurry up down to the Atlanta VA to checkout! The VA clinic will not be able to meet your needs..........
yep

I have a better suggestion, if you are dying go to the closest hospital. A little common sense goes a long way. There is no VA hospitals or clinics in every city.

i am not talking about a life or death emergency, of course if that is the case, you go directly to the nearest hospital, but you cannot go to a regular hospital for general care if you use the va system

Well for general care get off your butt and go to Atlanta! Most have to drive about that far for good medical care anyways.

Ofcourse, if a Veteran has a mild to moderate heart attack, he or she should drive to the nearest VA Hospital...Might not be an emergency situation.

Call the VA Hospital and up your medication dosage. It is apparent your assholism is spiraling out of control.

A VA clinic if run well, in Blairsville will cut down on a lot of travel to Atlanta. If a vet winds up in a private or county hospital it is usually the social or case workers job to get the government to pay the bill. If the patient requires care not present at the private hospital the government should pick up the bill for shipping them to a larger facility or VA hospital. I hope the opening of the clinic will prove very beneficial for the vets. Remember for every one soldier killed overseas hundreds most in their early 20s are left crippled, blinded, limbs missing, paralyzed to live forever in a wheelchair or a bed, 100s and 100s of precious young men that will never marry, have children, drive a car, play ball, dance or party with their friends ever again!!

Didn't the land that the hospital is being built on previously belong to one Becky Dyer, administrator of Union General Hospital? Is that a conflict of interest?

She only sold it to a company which built the clinic but it sure gave them the inside track.
