As for the last couple of letters that were sent in about the VA hospital on Leestown Road in Lexington, my primary care provider is there. The only services they provide other than a nursing home are one primary care team, drawing blood, and the optometrist. Everything else that you have done, including X-rays, dental, orthopedic, or any other specialist is done at the Cooper Drive facility. In Wilmore, there is the Thomson-Hood nursing home for veterans, which is state-run.
The VA is not stopping service as the Ben Chandler ads on TV would have you believe. They are only consolidating them. I don't know how many times you have had the privilege to drive from the Leestown Road facility to the one on Cooper Drive but it has been a hassle and if they close one down and make it more convenient and split the responsibility between the Cooper Drive and Thomson-Hood facilities to improve the quality of care, then I am all for it.
