The VA Boston Healthcare System operates a fully equipped medical center in Jamaica Plain in support of area veterans. While easily accessible, many veterans are unaware of the many services offered there so the VA will be hosting an Open House and Veterans Town Hall event on May 10th.
Additionally, many veterans do not realize that they are eligible for VA care or that it is provided without premiums or deductibles. This full service medical center offers a number of programs to include primary care, diabetes services, tele-health services, pharmacy, physical therapy, housing, lab services and mental health services among others.
Representatives from many services will be on hand to offer free hearing and blood pressure as well as onsite physicals, enrollment and benefits information, and local area veteran programs information as well as VA disability claims processing.
In addition, veterans will have the opportunity to provide feedback and engage with the VA Boston Healthcare System director via a “Veterans Town Hall” conference meeting. Refreshments will be available.
The Veterans Open House at the JP VA Medical Center (150 South Huntington Ave.) will be on Thursday, May 10th from 3 to 6 pm. This open house is open to the public, not just veterans.
