Rock Hill veterans clinic reopens after water damage

Despite the message still posted on its website, a clinic for Rock Hill-area veterans has reopened after closing several weeks ago when a fire sprinkler accidentally went off.

The Rock Hill Community Based Outpatient Clinic, operated by the William Jennings Bryan Dorn Veteran Affairs Medical Clinic in Columbia, closed after a fire sprinkler inadvertently discharged on Aug. 23.

At the time, officials did not have an estimate for when the clinic might reopen, but when contacted Thursday, clinic employees said the facility had reopened on Tuesday. Those same employees could not speak to the extent of the damage that caused the clinic to remain closed for about two and a half weeks.

Dorn clinic officials could not be reached for comment.
