JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Starting July 1, veterans in Craighead, Mississippi, and Poinsett counties who receive care through Sterling Medical Corporation will receive care through STG International, Inc.

According to a media release, this is due to a government requirement that requires contracts to be re-competed every five years.

A town hall will be held at the Earl Bell Community Center, 1212 S. Church Street, in Jonesboro on Tuesday, May 18, from noon to 1 p.m.

The meeting is for those with questions or concerns about the clinic and the new location.
