VA selects site for Staunton clinic


Staff Report

The VA Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network and Salem VA Medical Center announced today that a site has been selected for the establishment of a Community Based Outpatient Clinic in Staunton.

The clinic will be located at 1002 Natasha Way in Staunton. VA will lease space within a building that will be constructed on the property. When completed, the facility will provide 7,500 net usable square feet of clinic space.

The facility is expected to be operational in the spring of 2010. The clinic will provide primary care and general mental health services to the estimated 14,000 veterans living in or around Augusta, Clifton Forge, Covington, Highland, Lexington, Rockbridge, Staunton and Waynesboro.

Management and staffing of the Staunton CBOC will be the responsibility of the Salem VAMC.

Veterans currently enrolled at the Salem VAMC who live in close proximity to the Staunton clinic will be given priority for care there. Salem VAMC will review their list of veterans currently enrolled who may benefit from receiving their Primary Care at the new clinic. Veterans will be informed of the option.

Referrals for specialty care to Salem VAMC or to other VA sites will continue as appropriate for veterans seen initially at the Staunton Clinic.
