Women Veterans

Women who have served in the Armed Forces are eligible for a variety of Veterans benefits. VA actively encourages women to utilize the benefits due them.

The Women’s Veterans Health Care Program at the Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center (OGJVAMC) is committed to excellence in addressing health care needs of all women Veterans and ensuring that timely, equitable, high-quality, and comprehensive health care services are provided in a sensitive and safe environment.  OGJVAMC and each of its seven Outpatient/Rural Outreach Clinics now offer a clinically trained, gender specific health care provider available to all female Veterans to ensure comprehensive health care is available in a single visit.  In addition, VA Community Care is now offered to each women Veteran for gynecology services not available at the medical center or clinic location.

A separate Women’s Wellness/Primary Care Clinic has been completed at OGJVAMC, which offers a private waiting area for female patients and their children while waiting for their appointments.
