TEMPLE (February 6, 2013)--The Central Texas Veterans Health Care System Director Thomas C. Smith III was bid farewell Wednesday after nearly four years on the job.
Smith is transferring to the Birmingham VA Medical Center later this month.
The director’s duties included overseeing all day-to-day operations in Temple, Waco, a stand-alone clinic in Austin and four outpatient clinics in Brownwood, Bryan/College Station, Palestine and Cedar Park.
Since accepting the local position in 2009, Smith has also overseen operations at a rural outreach clinic in La Grange.
A ceremony was held Wednesday afternoon at the Olin E. Teague Veterans’ Medical Center to wish him well.
