PHOENIX — The Phoenix VA is finding ways to give veterans more options when it comes to facilities in the Valley where they can receive medical care.
Veteran Affairs staff has awarded two contracts to help improve the ability of veterans to get healthcare.
One of the contracts went to develop Southwest Community-Based Outpatient Clinic at Estrella Health Center in Phoenix. About 8,200 veterans will be able to get primary care through that facility.
“That will help and certainly it will be more convenient for veteran’s who live in that area” Phoenix VA spokesperson Jean Schaefer said.
CHP Camelback Medical received the other contract for clinical space in the Camelback Medical Plaza.
“We see about 15,000 veterans receiving primary care, mental health services and some ancillary services at that location in lieu of coming to the medical center on Indian School Road,” Schaefer said.
