U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown announces that $1 million has been awarded to the Veterans Administration Healthcare System of Ohio by the Department of Veterans Affairs. The funds were awarded to regional health care systems to improve services specifically designed for veterans in rural areas.

“Many Ohio veterans travel long distances to receive medical care,” said Brown, a member of the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee. “This increase in funding for rural health clinics and services is a step in the right direction. I will continue to fight to improve access to health care for all Ohio veterans.”

These federal funds will be used to increase the number of mobile clinics, create new outpatient clinics, expand fee-based health care services, establish connections between federal and community health partners, increase the use of telemedicine programs, and fund new, developing health pilot programs.
