Potter County Commissioner Paul Heimel reported that he recently attended a meeting on veteran’s affairs and that the Coudersport VA medical services provided at the Mapleview facility are in peril.
“Washington has been looking at veteran’s services,” said Heimel at the Jan. 12 meeting. “The facility at Maple View operates two days a week. The Veteran’s Administration is regulating local VA clinics asking that they focus on comprehensive and prevention services. It’s really difficult to do those levels of care in a rural clinic.
