VA Press Releases 

Austin VA Outpatient Clinic opening new location July 9th


The Central Texas Veterans Health Care System wants Veterans to know the newly constructed Austin VA Outpatient Clinic will be open for business July 9, 2013, at 7901 Metropolis Drive in southwest Austin, Texas.

Normal clinic operations in Austin will be closed from July 4 through July 8; however, the Austin VA Outpatient Clinic at 2901 Montopolis Drive will be prepared to take a limited number of walk-ins Friday, July 5, and Monday, July 8, while the move is in process.

Starting on the July 4th holiday, movers will transport the remaining items from the current clinic on Montopolis Drive, as well as from leased space at the Southgate Building, to the new location on Metropolis Drive.  When the move is complete, all of the Austin VA outpatient services will once again be consolidated under one roof in the new location.

“With over 184,000 square feet of usable space and plenty of parking, the new Austin VA Outpatient Clinic will be the largest free-standing leased clinic of its type in the nation, approximately three times larger than the current Montopolis Clinic,” said Dr. William F. Harper, Interim Director for Central Texas Veterans Health Care System
