HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Department of Veterans Affairs will hold a groundbreaking ceremony at the new Huntsville Veterans Outpatient Clinic on April 17.

The ceremony will be held at 500 Markaview Road between Butler High School and Clearview Cancer Institute at 11 a.m. Butler High will provide parking, and attendees will use shuttles to get to the groundbreaking. The public, especially all veterans, are invited to this ceremony, and refreshments will be served.

The Huntsville Veterans Outpatient Clinic will be a 47,800-square-foot facility, set to open in the fall of 2015. The new facility will bring the Madison/Decatur and Huntsville Community Based Outpatient Clinics together and provide primary care, mental health, optometry, audiology and an onsite pharmacy. The clinic will cost $39.5 million to build. The permit for this new facility was approved on Feb. 7.

Representative Mo Brooks, State Senator Bill Holtzclaw and several community and Redstone Arsenal leaders are expected to attend.
