First New VA Medical Center in 17 Years Opening in Nevada
Nevada veterans, and veterans of nearby states, will soon have access to the latest veterans’ health care center with the opening of newest Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) medical facility.
The Las Vegas Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC) will begin a phased opening process this month with the opening of their outpatient mental health clinic. The clinic will provide counseling for veterans suffering from conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and will feature advanced treatment technologies like transcranial magnetic stimulation therapy (TMS) to treat Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), PTSD, and other conditions.
As the VA works to enhance the health care services in their clinics nationwide, the Las Vegas VAMC will implement the latest technologies from day one. Throughout the year, other components of the facility will open including a 23-chair dental exam unit, 13 surgical suites, 48 in-patient medical/surgical beds, a 22-bed inpatient mental health care unit, a Telehealth unit, and a 120-bed community for severely disabled veterans requiring nursing home care.
With the successful launch of advanced VA facilities such as the Las Vegas VAMC, these services will hopefully begin to enhance existing VA facilities and will be incorporated into future planned VA hospitals and clinics.
