Veterans Find Help with the Veteran Health Program

Apr 18, 2023 12:44PM ● By Lena Saoud, Project Coordinator for the Veterans Health Program
The Veteran Health Program at Valley Health Partners’ Community Health Center recognizes the complex medical requirements presented by military service and focuses on healing, comfort, and care for veterans and their families. We created the Veteran Health Program to address the often-complicated healthcare needs of our veterans and their families. We do this by collaborating with area Veteran Affairs and Department of Defense partners, and strive to provide a coordinated quality experience.

Managing health care risk in our community:
  • improves lives.
  • contributes to a healthy workforce.
  • reduces costs for individuals and employers alike.
Our unique perspective allows us to offer a holistic—not just medical—approach to address other important life factors that improve the well-being of veterans, their family, and their caregivers. Offering a variety of expertise in one place will reduce the frustration of navigating blindly. The program’s vision is to offer a fully-coordinated healthcare experience in association with the Department of Defense through TRICARE, the Mission Act, and similar programs with the Department of Veterans Affairs. The Veteran Health Program staff respects your service, strives to gain trust, supports your healthcare needs, and offers wellness opportunities for a better lifestyle.

Our program’s service pillars include:
  • access to care We work cooperatively with the Department of Defense through TRICARE and the VA’s Community Care Program to offer a seamless experience with LVHN’s health services.
  • navigation and coordination Navigating and coordinating care can be complex. We will help and guide you with our knowledgeable and experienced staff.
  • guidance and planning A case manager will interview you and create a personalized care and action plan. As a bonus, we work with community partners to bridge gaps if additional support services are needed.
According to Alexander Alex, Lt Col, USAF, MSC, (Ret), Director of the Veteran Health Program, “We are changing the well-being and lives of our veterans and service members. To our knowledge, this is a unique program that assists veterans to access their benefits and the care they deserve. Our aim is to work closely with the VA and DOD health care to deliver a seamless experience.”

Who is eligible to join?
We invite all active duty, reserve, guard, retirees of the armed services and their families, and veterans seeking care and information on health services, benefits information, and community services available to them regardless of their ability to pay to contact VHP Veteran Health Program.
