Veterans services offered at local clinics

Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center is celebrating this Veterans Day by recognizing employees and board members who have served our country and informing Veterans of the healthcare options available locally.
“We are not only proud to have these men and women as part of our team, but also honored to be a Veterans Choice medical facility. Our clinics in Ahoskie, Murfressboro, Colerain, and Creswell all offer services through the Department of Veterans (VA) when they can’t make it to a VA facility,” said Kim Schwartz, RCCHC, CEO.
For example, if a Veteran needs an appointment for a specific type of care, and VA cannot provide the care in a timely manner, the Veteran may be eligible for care through the Veterans Choice Program at Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center clinics.
“Veterans must receive prior authorization from VA to receive this care, but we’re happy to accommodate them,” Schwartz added.
Additional information is available by calling any Roanoke Chowan Community Health Center location.
