The Richard L Roudebush VA Medical Center joins VA health care facilities across the country on Saturday, February 27, 2016 for a National Access Stand Down. VA’s ability to meet the urgent health needs of our Veterans remains a priority for VA and the nation.

The Indianapolis VA Medical Center is using every tool at our disposal to bring Veterans in to meet with doctors and nurses. We have virtually eliminated wait times in some areas and are steadily decreasing the length Veterans are asked to wait in others.

How are we accomplishing this goal?

On a typical day at the Richard L. Roudebush VA Medical Center over 2200 Veterans visit for an appointment.  For the past year we have been opening or increasing access to existing Saturday clinics.  On February 27, 2016 we are seeing scheduled appointments in our Primary Care clinic, Mental Health clinic, Sleep Disorder clinic and Audiology clinic.

Of special note is our Eye Clinic. VA-wide the demand for eye exams, glasses and clinical diagnosis is acute. Our Saturday Eye Clinic is easing that strain here in Indiana.
