Harry S. Truman Memorial Veterans’ Hospital
Reaching Out to Area Veterans
We are honored to serve our Veterans and we want to make sure our message is heard. Are you a Veteran? Have you enrolled with VA health care? If you are not a Veteran, do you know a Veteran and have they enrolled? All area Veterans are encouraged to apply for care with Truman VA, but understand there are eligibility requirements.
Our outreach team works hard to deliver this message to area Veterans. Last year, we attended 45 events including: Missouri State Fair, homeless events, post-deployment debriefings, Veteran student fairs, minority Veteran events, women Veteran events, and open houses. We also shared our outreach message online through videos featuring local Veterans.
Last fiscal year, Truman VA provided care to 34,955 Veterans, a 4% increase over the previous year. Our main facility is located in Columbia, Missouri and we serve 44 counties in Missouri as well as Pike County, Illinois. We also offer primary care services through seven Missouri community based outpatient clinics.
We are preparing for new enrollees by expanding access to care. In 2010, we opened a new outpatient clinic in Sedalia, Mo. In November 2011, we opened our newly relocated and expanded clinic at Fort Leonard Wood, Mo and we are currently recruiting for new primary care providers.
