Veterans With PTSD; Help Is Available In Fresno

Posted:
FRESNO, Calif. (KMPH) -

The Fresno VA Hospital cut the ribbon on a new 16,000 square foot Mental Health and Rehabilitation Services building Friday morning.

This state-of-the-art facility will provide outpatient treatment for veterans seeking help for post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health conditions.

The ribbon cutting event featured Congressman Jim Costa (D-Fresno) as one of the speakers, and concluded with a special commemoration honoring the Hubbard and Baro families.

Brothers Jared and Nathan Hubbard, and their friend Jeremiah Baro, all from Buchanan High School, were killed in action in Iraq.

Their families and friends have held an annual golf tournament since 2005 that has raised more than $120,000 for the Fresno VA Hospital.

A special plaque commemorating Jared and Nathan Hubbard, and Jeremiah Baro, and honoring their families for their sacrifice, and service to the Fresno VA Hospital was unveiled during the ribbon cutting.

"We are proud to celebrate the opening of this beautiful new facility for the Valley's veterans," said VA Central California Health Care System Director Joanne Krumberger. "It's a space where VA's caring staff will deliver world class care to the heroes we serve, and provide outpatient mental health programs, prosthetic services, and rehabilitation programs that will heal Veterans' minds, bodies, and hearts."

VA Central California Healthcare System serves more than 27,000 veterans in the Central Valley.
