Lebanon VAMC held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the recently expanded and remodeled Outpatient Behavioral Health Clinic on Aug. 10.
The remodel is the first phase of a scheduled three-phase plan for the 23,000-square-foot space. This first phase renovated 8,500 square feet, which includes 18 consultation rooms, one nurse triage station, three group rooms, and a new waiting area with check-in space.
The $1.8 million space will host an interprofessional team of clinicians ready to support veterans in their behavioral health needs through therapeutic and evidence-based programming.
The new clinic will offer veterans a comfortable space with a focus on reducing stress and anxiety while promoting timely access, collaborative care, and an emphasis on veteran-recovery goals.
“By creating this space, we are improving the environment of care,” Associate Chief of Staff Piro Rjepaj, M.D., said.
“Our commitment to veterans is unshakable and unwavering. Our promise to them is to give our very best, every day, always; and our hope for them is to know first-hand the experience of healing, wholeness, and peace.”
Lebanon VAMC serves a nine-county area in south-central Pennsylvania covering Adams, Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon, Perry, Schuylkill, and York counties.
Lebanon VAMC also oversees community clinics located in Mechanicsburg, Pottsville, Willow Street, Wyomissing, and York.
