Last Edited:

Health care for veterans in South Jersey has hit a big milestone and officials gathered to celebrate it.

On Friday, October 6th, Congressman Frank LoBiondo (2nd-R) joined with the new director of the Veterans Administration's Wilmington Medical Center and representatives from South Jersey's four hospitals to announce that all health care facilities have officially partnered with the VA to give local veterans more health care options.

AtlantiCare joined into an agreement with the Veterans Administration on Wednesday and officials say with all the hospitals on board, these partnerships will provide more quality health care for the men and woman who sacrificed so much for their country.

"Our veterans voluntarily sign up to put everything on the line for use so that we can live in the greatest country on the face of the earth," said LoBiondo. "And when they do that we make a promise to them, we make a promise about how we're going to take care of them. Today again is a major step in fulfilling that promise."

At the event officials also announced that a new VA clinic will be opened in Cape May County.
