The Manchester VA's urgent care clinic was closed Wednesday after the discovery of bed bugs.
Patients were sent away after the bugs were found in the waiting room and in one exam room.
Manchester VA Medical Center director Al Montoya says at no time was this an emergency and patients were able to receive care elsewhere. Questions about treatment were referred to Team GES, the VA's pest control contractor, who did not respond to requests for comment.
