A town hall and open house is slated next week for women military veterans to discuss health care.
The Eisenhower VA Medical Center is hosting the annual event May 23 at the Women’s Health Center on the VA campus from 3:30-5:30 p.m. The Women’s Health Center is located in the main hospital.
The event is being held in conjunction with National Women’s Health Week.
“Our organization is proud to serve our women veterans and know we must continuously examine and improve our processes with the way we deliver care to every single veteran we serve,” said Rudy Klopfer, director and CEO of the VA Eastern Kansas Health Care System. “We honor our women veterans by providing a safe, respectful environment inside and outside of our VA medical center walls. Our values as a high-reliability organization include respect for all people. Our female veterans are respected and valued.”
Women veterans are invited to find out about services offered by the VA and to voice their questions.
The program will be an open forum to discuss health care delivery and empower women to make health care a priority.
The event will provide information about services, the whole health program, center tours, refreshments and door prizes.
The town hall and open house is open to women veterans currently receiving care and those who are not.
“The staff at the Leavenworth Women’s Health Center want to encourage all women who served in the military and not currently using VA services to come by and find out about the benefits and services they have earned,” according to a press release.
