Community leaders, Veterans, and local political representatives recently joined Executive Leaders from the Durham VA Healthcare System (DVAHCS) and the VA Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network to celebrate the official opening of the new VA Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Morehead City, N.C. After a brief ribbon-cutting ceremony, attendees were treated to a guided tour of the new facility.

“This new space shows how far we’ve come,” Marion Cumbo, Nurse Manager of the Morehead City CBOC, said. “We were a bit limited in what services we could offer Veterans at our old location. Now, we can offer our patients so much more.”

Open to Veterans since late February, the ribbon cutting was a culmination of at least three years of effort to expand the Morehead City CBOC, which currently serves about 5,000 Veterans across Carteret County and the surrounding area. Morehead City lies only a few miles from Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point.
