The VA Texas Valley Coastal Bend Health Care System (VATVCBHCS) is proud to announce the new Corpus Christi VA Specialty Outpatient Clinic located at 205 South Enterprize Parkway began seeing patients on November 13, 2012 – the day after Veterans Day! A phased activation approach for this new site is currently in progress with the following services currently available: Mental Health, Pharmacy, Lab, Orthopedics, Podiatry and Physical Therapy. When fully activated, the new facility will provide the following specialty care services: Cardiology, Pulmonary, Dermatology, Endocrinology, Urology, Orthopedics, Ophthalmology, Specialty Mental Health, dental services and prosthetics.
"One of my goals is to maintain and expand services and facilities for Veterans in our Health Care System and I am proud to be able to do that for our Coastal Bend Veterans" said Mr. Robert M. Walton, Director of the VA Texas Valley Coastal Bend HCS. He further explained that this important new project will decrease use of the non-VA care program and allow for more services to be provided in-house which ultimately improves overall care coordination. A dedication/ribbon cutting ceremony is in the planning stages for January 2013.
