The Robert J. Dole VA Medical Center said it will close its outpatient clinic in Liberal next year. 

The Dodge City Globe reports that the Community-Based Outpatient Clinic opened in 2018 in Liberal. It will cease operations after Jan. 14. Candace Ifabiyi, Medical Center director for Dole VA, says they are disappointed to have to make this decision. She says veterans in southwest Kansas have other options for their health care needs, including a well-staffed VA clinic in Dodge City that is within driving distance. It also has virtual programs that let veterans connect by video from their homes to VA health care providers.
