More than 80,000 Veterans living in Anne Arundel and Howard Counties now have access to VA health care services at the new Fort Meade VA Outpatient Clinic, which opened on Monday, January 14, 2013. The new clinic, which is located at 2479 5th Street adjacent to the Kimbrough Ambulatory Care Center on the Fort George G. Meade installation, will be the sixth community based outpatient clinic throughout the state that is operated by the VA Maryland Health Care System.
Designed by Nutec Group of York, PA, in collaboration with the Department of Defense, the 13,300 square foot facility features 21 spacious exam rooms, one audiology booth, comfortable patient waiting areas, and state-of-the-art medical technology. Services at the Fort Meade VA Outpatient Clinic will include general outpatient medical care, preventive health and education services, various medical screenings, TeleHealth services, and referrals to specialized programs and inpatient services available throughout the VA Maryland Health Care System.
“Veterans in Anne Arundel and Howard Counties can expect to receive exceptional health care services at the new clinic that are coordinated by experienced and compassionate clinicians and support staff who specialize in delivering personalized attention to meet the unique needs of Veterans,” said Dennis H. Smith, director of the VA Maryland Health Care System. “This clinic is an example of our ongoing commitment to making VA health care more accessible to Veterans where they live and work.”
As the first VA outpatient clinic in the country to be Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certified, the new facility has incorporated sustainable building design elements to meet federal green policy requirements.
