VA Maryland Health Care System
Relocation of the Fort Howard VA Outpatient Clinic
After reviewing the recent water damage at the Fort Howard VA Outpatient Clinic, the VA Maryland Health Care System has decided to permanently close the facility and move it to a new location. The clinic’s numerous infrastructure issues led to the decision to move it to a new and more accessible location to better serve the needs of Veterans. Once approved by the Veterans Health Administration, the VA Maryland Health Care System will be using the competitive lease process to identify a new location for the clinic in Eastern Baltimore County that is in close proximity to mass transportation and major roadways.
"Providing a safe and healthy environment for our patients and employees is our top priority,” said Dr. Adam M. Robinson, Jr., director of the VA Maryland Health Care System. "After our recent review, we have determined that the Fort Howard VA Outpatient Clinic is no longer a suitable environment to provide high quality patient care, and that it would be in the best interest of our patients to find a new location that is more centrally located."
The clinic initially closed on March 9th as result of water damage, and all patient care activities and staff were transferred to the Loch Raven VA Outpatient Clinic. Until a new location can be identified and opened in Eastern Baltimore County, patients will continue to receive outpatient services from their same primary care providers at Loch Raven.
