Important Announcement

What we’re doing to improve appointment timeliness?

The VA San Diego Healthcare System prides itself in being the only healthcare organization in the area dedicated to providing high quality, timely care to Veterans in San Diego and Imperial Counties.  Our priority, now more than ever, is to ensure Veterans new to our healthcare system, or new to a specialty clinic receive an appointment as soon as possible.  When scheduling, Veterans are offered an appointment with a date specific time. To continue assure timely access, we are:

  • Opening a new community clinic in Sorrento Valley this summer, which will initially have capacity for 4,800 patients and eventually 7,200 patients
  • Adding mental health provider positions and are bringing aboard additional staff this summer
  • Hiring seven new Nurse Practitioners to improve immediate access to primary care
  • Significantly expanding mental health clinic space at our Mission Valley location
  • Adding additional clinic hours in the evenings and weekends for primary care, specialty care and mental health services
  • Working with the private sector firm under contract at our Escondido location to add additional primary care providers.  These providers can now see new patients within a week.
  • Contacting all Veterans with an appointment beyond 90 days and offering an earlier appointment or arrange care with a provider in the community at VA expense.
  • Last week VASDHS received $11 million from VA Central Office which will be used to further improve access to care within VASDHS or cover the cost of specialty care we refer to the local community.
