84,000-square foot VA clinic coming to Myrtle Beach

84,000-square foot VA clinic coming to Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Myrtle Beach Community Appearance Board heard plans for a new Veterans Affairs clinic Thursday.

The plans include an 84,000 square foot facility that would sit on 400 acres near the Market Common.

The facility would sit at the Myrtle Beach International Technology & Aerospace Park.

The Community Appearance Board was impressed with the plans the developers presented Thursday.

Many veterans who live in the Myrtle Beach area have to drive to the VA in Charleston if they want more advanced medical care.

That will no longer be a problem for veterans once the facility is built.

Ground breaking is expected to happen in June. The developer wants to finish construction by November 2020. From there, it’s up to the VA to decide on when it will officially open.

The plans for the facility will have to go through the Community Appearance Board one final time.
