Frackville VA Outpatient Clinic

About

Located in the Schuylkil Health Center-North, the Frackville VA Outpatient Clinic is a satellite clinic operating under the umbrella of the Lebanon VA Medical Center. Smaller outpatient clinics such as this one allow local veterans access to services such as primary care and immunizations without the hassle of traveling long distances to larger facilities. Especially for those veterans in rural areas who may not have access to public transportation or depend on loved ones for travel, these locations offer the health care they deserve.

Services

The Frackville VA Outpatient Clinic is a primary care facility offering medical services such as prescription refills, wellness exams, laboratory services such as x-rays and blood work, immunizations, and preventative health care. Most outpatient clinics within the VA’s network utilize a specialty prescription program that allows veterans to refill their medications via mail, telephone, or the internet. Should a veteran require services outside the scope of the Frackville Clinic a referral can be made to the Larger Lebanon VA Medical Center or other necessary medical facility within the VA’s Healthcare System. The Lebanon VA Medical Center offers veterans acute medical, surgical, behavioral health and long-term inpatient care, as well as a full range of outpatient services including primary care, specialty care, home based care, and psychiatric rehabilitation services. Recently the Lebanon VAMC added specialized diagnostic services including nuclear medicine and the ability to perform MRIs. In the near future the center will also complete construction on a new ICU/Urgent Care Clinic. End of life programs available at this location include an inpatient hospice unit. Other home care and community service programs are the center’s home based primary care, homemaker home health care, community residential care, adult day health care, and homeless veteran care. Currently, the Lebanon VAMC includes 49 hospital beds, 136 nursing home beds, and 63 PRRTP beds, totaling 248 beds. As well as providing general medicine and surgical services, Lebanon VAMC is a teaching hospital, providing a wealth of their patient care services through the use of state-of-the-art technology provided by ongoing education and research. Lebanon VAMC provides comprehensive health care for veterans, with one-third of their staff being veterans themselves.
