Offering Saturday and Extended Hours is Nothing New in the Robley Rex VA Health System

The Robley Rex VA Medical Center took part in VA's nation-wide Access Stand Down November 14, 2015. The event was held to give Veterans an opportunity to see providers outside of perceived 9-5 weekday business hours. But this isn't a new concept in the Robley Rex VA Health System; specialty programs such as dermatology, cardiology, mental, and women's health have been offering evening and weekend hours for Veterans for over two years. "We are paying attention to what the Veterans need and we adjust as we need to," VAMC Director Martin Traxler told local television affiliate WDRB. "We don't ask Veterans to adjust to our system in the way we provide services...we're adjusting our system to what the Veterans need."

For more information about extended and weekend clinic hours, contact your local clinic or specialty program for details. To see more photos from the event, check out our Flickr Album at https://www.flickr.com/photos/louisvillevamc/albums/72157661259823172.
