When the Pocomoke City VA Outpatient Clinic opened its doors 12 years ago, it had one doctor and one nurse working just one day a week. Over the years, the staff has more than tripled and operating hours grew to five days per week. As the staff and Veteran population increased, the need for a larger space became evident. On Saturday, August 18, 2012, VA Maryland Health Care System Director Dennis H. Smith, Pocomoke City VA Outpatient Clinic staff, local dignitaries and over 70 Veterans joined to cut the ribbon and celebrate the opening of the new Pocomoke City VA Outpatient Clinic at 1701 Pocomoke Marketplace, Unit 211 in Pocomoke City. The clinic currently serves more than 1,500 Veterans in Worcester, Wicomico, and Somerset Counties on Maryland’s Lower Eastern Shore and Accomack and Northampton Counties in Virginia.
The Pocomoke VA Outpatient Clinic provides the following services:
Veterans on the Lower Eastern Shore can enroll for VA health care at the Pocomoke City VA Outpatient Clinic by bringing a copy of their DD-214, a photo I.D., and financial information from the previous calendar year to facilitate the enrollment process.
