D-NH : the closures of the clinics are now off the table and the clinics will remain open.

LITTLETON — Several months ago, local veterans and community members expressed concerns that the Veterans Administration community-based outpatient clinic (CBOC), launched in 2015 along Cottage Street and serving more than 2,000 area veterans, was recommended for closure. In March, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs recommended closing the clinics in Littleton and Conway and in Newport, Vt., and directing patients to a new multi-specialty clinic recommended to be built in St. Johnsbury, as part of a stated effort to maintain access and increase future system sustainability. It would have left all of northern New Hampshire without a CBOC. But on Wednesday, the office of U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan, D-NH, announced that the closures of the clinics are now off the table and the clinics will remain open.
