During August, we invited you to take a virtual tour of VA Medical Centers across the country and explore how we are improving the lives of Veterans. VHA (Veterans Health Administration) is upgrading its facilities Nationwide to maintain excellence in Veteran care. State of the art remodeling and expansions allow our health care professionals to treat more Veterans more efficiently. Join us on Facebook and Twitter (using #routeVA) to learn about where you could launch a career of service with VA.
Our first stop was the St. Cloud, MN, VA Medical Center, which recently opened a building specifically for Veterans to receive acute psychiatric care in a secure, supportive environment, allowing VA to expand St. Cloud’s Residential Rehabilitation Treatment Program. A 19,000 sq. ft. Rehabilitation Center is currently under construction and scheduled to open this winter.
Next, we visited the Detroit, MI, VA Healthcare System’s modern C4 Cardiac Telemetry Unit, which opened in December 2014. Here, Veteran cardiac patients receive highly specialized care with 24-hour electronic monitoring.
And at the VA Hudson Valley, NY, Health Care System, Veterans now benefit from a renovated physical rehabilitation clinic. More space and new equipment helps accommodate the growing number of Veterans requiring physical therapy. The updated facility has significantly improved the experience for those giving and those receiving care.
We will soon explore the new Orlando, FL, VA Medical Center, projected to treat over 100,000 Veterans annually. The $600 million campus covers 1.2 million sq. ft. and includes 134 inpatient beds, a multispecialty outpatient clinic, a community living center, a rehabilitation clinic, and a Veterans benefit service center. A Recruitment Center is also open to help fill an expected 3,500 health care positions.
These new developments bring new opportunities to provide quality care to Veterans. Follow along our virtual tour (using #routeVA), and learn more about available careers at the VA Medical Center near you.
