Syracuse, NY- On Saturday, February 27, 2016, the Syracuse VA will participate in a VA-Nationwide Clinical Access Stand Down. A team of senior Medical Center clinical leaders and administrators will be on site to re-affirm that processes are in place to ensure that Veterans are being seen in the most appropriate time frame and by the proper health care provider.

The event is a nationwide effort being undertaken by the Veterans Health Administration at VA medical centers across the nation focusing efforts to provide timely patient care and foster a culture of continuous improvement in the VA’s health care system.

At the Syracuse VA Medical Center we strive to provide all Veterans with safe, high-quality, personalized, and timely care wherever they receive their health services. In keeping with that commitment, our clinical leaders and administrators are constantly focused on our appointment scheduling process to make sure every Veteran is being seen in the most appropriate time frame and by the proper health care provider. The first Stand Down was held last November.

Access Stand Down efforts will continue after Feb. 27 and the Syracuse VA will continue to improve the system in order to better the health needs of those who need help the most.
