CONROE - Three years after announcing the expansion on the Conroe Veterans Affairs Clinic, officials with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs have confirmed the location of the new clinic that will span over 30,000 sf.

The new site is a medical office building at 690 Loop 336 S. The clinic will occupy the third floor for primary care and part of the fourth floor for mental health services.

“Our spacious new Conroe clinic location will allow us to offer area veterans much-needed specialty services like audiology, optometry and radiology,” said Adam C. Walmus, director of the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center.

In 2013, the Conroe clinic logged 44,000 outpatient visits. According to the VA’s website, there are 1.7 million veterans in Texas, including 1.5 million men and 177,075 women.

The Conroe clinic saw some relief when the Tomball clinic opened last fall. That clinic, located at 1200 Main St., has served more than 7,000 veterans in the area since opening.

“Some of the veterans, about 1,000, were able to transfer over there, but our need for local quality, health care for our veterans continues to explode,” U.S. Rep. Kevin Brady said.

As for the new location, it is close to the current clinic and highly visible. The site also will include about 220 parking spots, including 20 handicap parking spots. Brady said the build-out of the new space will happen quickly.
