MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

A new Memphis Veterans Affairs Medical Center is officially open.

The new location at 1689 Nonconnah Boulevard held its ribbon cutting Thursday morning.

The 25,000 square foot facility will house 12 Patient Aligned Care Teams (PACTs) with physicians, nurses, technicians, and administrative staff members.

Nonconnah VA Clinic is located about seven miles from the main VA Medical Center; it is expected to help relieve congestion and wait times for patients.

"We are hoping to make this as convenient as possible," Dr. Thomas Ferguson said. "We view this as the future of outpatient care."

The new facility also allows the Memphis VA to expand services and improve primary area access for veterans.

Nonconnah VA Clinic will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
