VA Clinic Likely Heading to Kernersville

A Veteran's clinic and several hundred jobs are likely heading to Kernersville.

"According to a Kernersville city official the clinic would bring at least 600 jobs to the community located in between Greensboro and Winston-Salem. The Veterans Administration is choosing a site for a new 300,000 square foot outpatient clinic. It will replace the 58,000 square foot clinic in Winston-Salem that is now 13 years old. The Kernersville employee confirmed that the VA is no longer considering a site in Winston-Salem for the new facility. Kernersville has two of the remaining three sites that are a possible location for the clinic. The clinic would be owned by a private developer and leased back the VA for the next 20 years. If Kernersville is selected, the clinic is scheduled to open in the summer of 2013."

Jeff Tiberii covers politics for WUNC. Before that, he served as the station's Greensboro Bureau Chief.
