A Veterans Affairs outpatient medical facility is open in Hopkinsville with a full-time clinic and a physician and nurse practitioner on staff.

The clinic is at 1102 S. Virginia St. and is open from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, said a spokesman for Sterling Medical Associates Inc., which has the contract to run the clinic.

Dr. Kelly Tate, who has practiced medicine for more than 15 years in Hopkinsville, is the physician on staff at the clinic. The nurse practitioner is Randa Brumfield.

The clinic provides health care services to veterans residing in Christian, Caldwell, Hopkins, Muhlenberg, Todd and Trigg counties, and to members of the Veterans Administration MidSouth Healthcare Network, according to a news release from Sterling Medical Associates.

Primary care services are offered by the medical personnel at the clinic. Mental health services include the services of a psychiatrist, psychologist and social worker.

Women’s health exams also are available.

There is a laboratory and basic radiology services available at the Hopkinsville clinic so patients don’t have to travel to another VA facility for many tests.

The clinic also offers a My HealtheVet computer terminal in the waiting room. The Internet-based service provides veterans, active-duty soldiers, their dependents and caregivers “secure and convenient access to current VA health care information, benefits and services,” a Sterling spokesman said in the news release.

The clinic phone number is 270-885-2106.
