VA Opens Clinic For Female Veterans

Posted: Updated:
Jackson -

The face of the country's military has changed over the years with more diversity than ever before.

    

On Monday, the G.V. "Sonny" Montgomery Medical Center opened its Women Clinic, an area dedicated to primary care and gender-specific health care for female veterans.

    

For Army National Guard Sgt. Kaisha Cornelius, the clinic is long overdue.

    

A Clinton native and 17-year veteran of Operation Desert Shield and Desert Storm, Cornelius said she has used the Jackson VA for several years now.

    

Dr. Jessie Spencer, the Women's Health Medical director for the center, tells The Clarion-Ledger the new clinic will not only offer specific care for female veterans who come through the doors, but it will also enable better coordination with some of the outsourcing of patients.
