Fargo, N.D. (WDAY TV) - The Fargo VA has opened its new Eye, Ear, Nose and Throat unit.

With returning troops coming home with vision and ear trauma from explosions, the need for state of the art equipment and more staff has skyrocketed.

The demand has also increased because of the Vietnam and World War 2 veterans needing hearing tests and devices.

Dr. Brian Hancock, VA Chief of Staff: “These are people who are special and done a lot for us and as the Chief of Staff I am looking for services that should be provided and do it in a fiscally responsible manner.”

Three new specialists have been added to the VA staff as part of the expansion.
