BAY PINES, FL – The Sebring VA Community Clinic located at 3760 U.S. Highway 27 South in Sebring, Fla. will close on Nov. 16 at 4:30 p.m. and reopen to serve Veterans at a new, larger location on Nov. 19 at 8:00 a.m.
The new clinic building is located approximately two miles south of the current location at 5901 U.S. Highway 27 South in the Beverly Center Plaza.
"We are very excited about moving our Sebring VA Community Clinic into a new building that is more than twice as large as the old clinic," said Suzanne M. Klinker, Director, Bay Pines VA Healthcare System.
"The new building will provide a patient centered environment and spacious accommodations for both Veterans and staff. It is an excellent location for us to be able to deliver high quality VA health care service in a comfortable setting," she said.
Patients who have scheduled appointments at the Sebring VA Community Clinic through Nov. 16 will continue to be seen at the current location. Patients who require health care services after that time will be seen at the new clinic.
The primary phone number for the clinic will not change. Veterans can continue to call (863) 471-6227 for appointments and cancellations, pharmacy services, health care questions and more.
Services currently offered at the Sebring VA Community Clinic will continue to be available at the new location to include: primary care, mental health care, referrals to VA specialty care services, electrocardiograms (EKG), phlebotomy (blood draws and specimen collection), social work, pharmacist consultation, and anticoagulation clinic.
