(WBNG) – Representative Anthony Brindisi is continuing his push to keep the veterans clinic in the Southern Tier.

Last year, a spokesperson for the Bainbridge Community Based Outpatient Clinic said it will move, but Brindisi is adamant on keeping the clinic in it’s Chenango County location.

He said the clinic offers healthcare services and resources to veterans close by, whereas if the clinic was moved, it would force veterans to go further away to keep the care and treatment they need.

“The most important thing is that the veterans who use that clinic are going to be able to utilize it in the coming year so that we don’t have to see them be forced to travel to other parts to get the healthcare they need,” he said.

Brindisi told 12 News he has pushed for language in legislation to help keep the clinic in place for this year, but that a long-term investment into the clinic is the best way to make sure local veterans are taken care of.
