Wilmington Health Center

Starting Monday, military veterans in the Coastal Carolina region will be able to seek medical treatment closer to home. The new Wilmington Health Center, located next to the airport, will enhance and expand health care for as many as 18,000 veterans.

Veterans requiring specialty treatment falling outside the capacity of smaller outpatient clinics in Wilmington and Brunswick County endure long trips to Fayetteville to receive care. Fred Roche, the administrator of the new Wilmington Health center, says much of that travel time will now be alleviated.
