The facility was designed to meet the demand for a growing Veteran population across San Diego County and its 9,950 square-foot space will provide space for four primary care teams with 15 primary care exam rooms, six team rooms and 5 team consult rooms for an estimated 17,000 outpatient visits per year.
Services offered at the clinic include primary care, pharmacist counseling (no prescription service), lab drawing, nutritional counseling, women’s health care, individual counseling for behavioral health, individual and group counseling for mental health(future service) and patient education classes VIA video teleconferencing (future service). We will start scheduling patients for appointments to the clinic on Aug. 25.
