Veterans’ Room Offers Local Connection to Dublin VA Medical Center

Jones County Health Department is proud to announce the opening of the health department’s Veterans’ Room. The product of a partnership between the health department and the Carl Vinson Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Dublin, the Veterans’ Room provides a space where veterans can receive telemedicine services.

The health department invites the community to visit the new Veterans’ Room at an open house event Oct. 10, 2 – 4 p.m.

“Our local veterans deserve high-quality care, no matter their circumstances,” said Jones County Health Department Nurse Manager Sherry Bryant. “Veterans within our community may face barriers to receiving healthcare; they may have transportation needs or may not have a reliable connection to communication services. At the Veterans’ Room, they can receive care from VA staff without having to travel outside of the county.”

Veterans wishing to use the telemedicine services will schedule appointments through the VA Medical Center. Telemedicine appointments will be available every Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m.

“The Veterans’ Room is a warm and inviting environment for the comfort of our United States veterans where they can access VA care,” said Bryant. “We’re looking forward for this new service to improve the health of our veterans.”

For questions about the Veterans’ Room, contact Nurse Manager Sherry Bryant at 478-986-3164. To learn more about the health department’s services, visit NCHD52.org/services.
