Veterans in the Milledgeville area now have shorter drives to obtain VA medical care. The Carl Vinson VA Medical Center in Dublin, Ga. opened the Milledgeville VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) on November 16, 2012.
The clinic is located on the A-wing, 1st floor of the Pete Wheeler Bldg 2249 Carl Vinson Hwy Milledgeville GA, 31061. The clinic phone number for regular hours of operation, Monday thru Friday 8am to 4:30pm is (478) 414-4540. Veterans can also call the 24 hour Nurse Triage number at 1-877-424-8212 to speak with a nurse.
Services include primary care, mental health, social work, optometry, podiatry, prosthetics, pharmaceutical counseling and dietary counseling. Other services will be available through the use of Tele-Health.
"Veterans already enrolled at other VA facilities have a choice of continuing their care with their current VA provider or transferring their care to the new Milledgeville VA Community Based Outpatient Clinic" said John S. Goldman, Director for Carl Vinson VA Medical Center. Changing your primary care and/or mental health provider will not limit your ability to access specialty services at the Carl Vinson VA Medical Center in Dublin.
Veterans are advised to keep appointments already scheduled at other VA facilities until their care is transferred and an appointment is scheduled at the Milledgeville CBOC. Veterans requesting care at the new clinic that are not currently enrolled in VA Healthcare may obtain an application form online at www.va.gov or can visit the clinic to pick up an enrollment package.
