CRAIG, Colo. (AP) - The Craig Veterans TeleHealth Clinic serving northwest Colorado and southeast Wyoming is looking for more patients.
Paul Sweeney of the VA Medical Center in Grand Junction, Colo., says an open house at the clinic today was intended to not only inform veterans of the services available but also to boost patient numbers.
He tells the Craig Daily Press there are 300 to 600 veterans in Craig, Colo., that are eligible for care, but not all may know how to enroll in VA health care programs.
The telehealth clinic in Craig uses technology that allows patients there to be examined remotely by doctors and specialists in Grand Junction.
