Starting Monday veterans in the North Country will have access to a new VA clinic in Littleton.

It’s in a remodeled section of the old Littleton Hospital and with 10,000 square feet it is almost twice as large as the clinic vets have been visiting.

“The big differences are the new services we are offering which would be audiology, PT and home-based primary care. Those are services that we previously did not have available in the Littleton area,” says Dr. Hugh Huizenga, the chief of primary care for the White River Junction VA Hospital, which is the parent facility.

The new facility also means veterans can now get hearing aids in the North Country instead of traveling to White River Junction. 

And they will have more mental health and primary care providers on hand.

The clinic has been serving about 2,300 vets.

The renovation cost about $1.8 million.
