Veterans Affairs Investigates Air Concerns at Greenbrier Clinic

Greenbrier Co. CBOC

  A Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic in Greenbrier County is temporarily closed after several employees became ill.

Dr. Wayne McBride with the Beckley VA Medical Center says that several employees reported becoming light-headed or dizzy over the past week. He says three or four employees sought emergency medical treatment.

The VA closed the community-based outpatient clinic in Maxwelton on Friday.

McBride says no patients experienced symptoms. Initial air quality tests didn’t find anything unusual. More tests are being conducted.

Patients are being treated at the Beckley hospital until the clinic reopens.
