Tennessee Valley Healthcare System (TVHS) and Nashville Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA) Regional Office leaders will host a Veterans town hall meeting at 6 p.m. EST on Wednesday, June 13 at the Chattanooga clinic at 6098 Debra Road, Suite 5200 Building 6200.
This event is free and open to all Veterans.
Town hall meetings give Tennessee Valley Healthcare System leadership an opportunity to meet Veterans they serve face-to-face in their home towns, ask for direct feedback, and provide relevant information on new and upcoming services and projects. The meetings also give representatives from the Nashville VBA Regional Office a chance to provide personalized benefits assistance, to include claim and appeals status for Veterans and their dependents.
TVHS is planning to open an expanded clinic in Chattanooga to replace the current facility. The new facility, scheduled to open by the end of 2021, will be roughly twice the size of the current clinic to meet the increased demand for VA health care in the area. It will also be designed and built to facilitate more efficient delivery of health care services.
TVHS is an integrated tertiary health care system comprised of two hospitals, the Alvin C. York Campus in Murfreesboro and the Nashville Campus, as well as more than a dozen community-based outpatient clinics located in Tennessee and Kentucky. TVHS provides ambulatory care, primary care, and secondary care in acute medicine and surgery, specialized tertiary care, transplant services, spinal cord injury outpatient care, and a full range of extended care and mental health services.
The Nashville VBA Regional Office is comprised of over 600 full-time employees serving a Veteran population of about 506,000 of all generations across Tennessee and Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. The Nashville VBA Regional Office administers approximately $1.4 billion in annual federal benefits. Programs include compensation, pension and vocational rehabilitation and employment. In addition, the Nashville Regional Office includes one of eight National Call Centers providing customer service to clients nationwide.
