Although it will not open for business until next week, the 20,000 square-foot Ramsey clinic, on the corner of Sapphire Street and Veterans Drive, celebrated Veterans Day today (Nov. 11) by offering tours of the facility, which includes areas for dental, eye care, women’s health, a laboratory, mental health and primary care.
Veterans crowded into The Fountains event center to hear the clinic officially dedicated by Ramsey Mayor Bob Ramsey, developer Jim Deal, U.S. Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken as well as VA officials.
The event was capped off with a fly-over by three vintage warbirds.
