New Fort Meade Health Clinic

FORT MEADE, Md. (AP) — Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger says a new health clinic opening at Fort Meade will serve 80,000 veterans.

The congressman says the clinic will open Monday and serve veterans living in Howard and Anne Arundel counties. And Ruppersberger says the new clinic is the first in the country to be LEED-certified for its eco-friendly design.

The $4.6 million clinic on the Fort Meade campus will provide primary care as well as audiology, optometry and women’s health services.
