“Female veterans in the borderland now have a medical clinic of their own. The new women’s clinic at the El Paso VA recently opened its doors inside the William Beaumont Army Medical Center.

The clinic is run by women for women. It’s hoped the added privacy will convince more female vets to seek medical care. There are currently more than 13,000 female vets in the borderland.

“We have to have a little more attention. There are other health issues that we have to take care of, ” said Rubina Garrison. Garrison is back in El Paso after serving 21 years in the Navy. She’s just one of hundreds of female veterans lining up to be seen by female doctors and nurses at the new women’s clinic.

The demand for appointments at the new clinic is so high, appointments are already extending into March.”
