HILLSBORO - An outpatient clinic has opened in Hillsboro to serve the growing number of men and women who have served in the armed forces and need care.

The opening of the 23,000-square-foot Hillsboro clinic marks a step toward bringing services closer to where many veterans live, and addresses the lines and crowded parking lots at the Portland Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

In 2007, a VA clinic opened in east Portland, and by June, VA outpatient clinics are scheduled to open in the Oregon City area and in The Dalles. A part-time clinic also will open in Lincoln City.
