VA Announces New Clinic at Devils Lake
The Department of Veteran Affairs Fargo VA Health Care System will be opening a Primary Outpatient and Telehealth Clinic (POTC) in Devils Lake, N.D.
“We are honored to join the Devils Lake community in providing our Veterans with greater access to high quality health care," said Michael J. Murphy, Medical Center Director.
The POTC will provide full-time telehealth services with a part-time physician and on-site staffing by nurses so Veterans can be seen by a health care professional five days a week. Direct access to specialists at the Fargo VA HCS will be available through telehealth.
Telehealth uses videoconferencing and remote controlled video cameras to link the patient with the Fargo Health Care System. The POTC will ensure Veterans have access to the healthcare services they have earned and deserve.
Plans are underway to open the new POTC later this year, after space is secured and staff members are trained and ready to care for Veterans.
