Larsen will tour the new Everett Community Outpatient Clinic and discuss veteran employment with WorkSource Snohomish County
EVERETT, WA – On Tuesday, August 23, Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) will join VA Puget Sound Executive Director Dr. Tom Bundt and staff for a tour of the new Everett Community Outpatient Clinic (CBOC). The 26,000 square foot CBOC, which will open for in-person care in mid-September, will bring quality, accessible health care and services closer to approximately 8,000 North Sound veterans.
Larsen will then meet with representatives from WorkSource Snohomish County to discuss the challenges faced by veterans seeking employment opportunities in Snohomish County. WorkSource Snohomish County will hold its Regional Career and Resource Fair on Wednesday, August 31 at the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Marysville with over 60 employers planning to attend.
A senior member of the Armed Services Committee, Larsen is committed to ensuring that women and men who have served in uniform have access to the resources and services they need. Earlier this month, President Biden signed into law the law Honoring our PACT law, legislation supported by Larsen to ensure veterans exposed to hotspots and toxic substances like Agent Orange and PFAS can access the care and benefits they need. Last year, Larsen and Senator Patty Murray introduced legislation to provide fertility treatments, such as in vitro Fertilization (IVF) and counseling are included in military and veteran health benefits.
A grand opening for CBOC Everett is scheduled for 10-11 a.m. on August 30, 2022. Senator Patty Murray will be the guest speaker.
