Honoring America’s Veterans with quality health care services, part of the largest integrated health care system in the U.S.
Greetings Veteran and community members,
You have probably seen all the coverage in the media about Ebola. We wanted to assure you that White River Junction VA Medical Center is moving ahead quickly to ensure that we are ready for any Ebola related incidents.
White River Junction VA would like to remind everyone that the United States’ current state is neither epidemic nor even an outbreak. VA is well equipped to deal with infectious diseases; we have the equipment and training necessary to keep our Veterans and employees safe.
Even though this disease has not yet affected our region it is important to be prepared with the proper responses and protocols should we have the need. The safety of our Veterans and our staff is our top priority.
As a Healthcare Facility, we must remain cognizant and proactive in all situations ensuring the safety of the Veterans we care for and our staff. With that said, we are asking Veterans coming in for care the following two questions:
1) Have you travelled to either Sierra Leone, Guinea, or Liberia in the past 21 days?
2) Have you had direct contact with someone who is suspected of having Ebola?
If you know the answer to either of these questions is YES please call 802.295.9363 ext. 0 and ask for Telephone Triage BEFORE coming in for your appointment. We will arrange a follow up phone call with your provider before you come in for your appointment.
While we feel exposure to Ebola in our Region is unlikely at this point in time, the safety and well-being of Veterans and employees is paramount. We want to thank you for your participation to ensure that White River Junction VA continues to be a safe place for Veterans to receive their healthcare.
