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.

For Women Veterans, VA is Here

VA welcomes women Veterans. We are committed to providing high-quality services in a sensitive and safe environment at all VA facilities. Women Veteran Program Managers are available at each VA medical center to assist women Veterans with questions and coordinate services (see contact information on this page).

Each woman Veteran is assigned a Women’s Health Primary Care Provider. These experienced providers are trained to deliver comprehensive primary care, as well as routine women’s health care. You will be at the center of a Patient Aligned Care Team (PACT) where a provider, nurse, and others will work with you to manage your health care:

  • Primary care: general medical care for acute and chronic conditions, such as chronic pain, high blood pressure, and diabetes
  • Preventive care: immunizations and cancer screenings (breast and cervical), osteoporosis screening and management
  • Gender-specific care
  • Birth control, family planning, and preconception counseling
