Ribbon Cutting Ceremony Set for Robeson County VA Clinic

January 28, 2011

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. – The Fayetteville VA Medical Center will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Robeson County Community Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) Friday, Feb. 4 at 2:30 p.m.

Daniel Hoffmann, director of the VA’s Mid-Atlantic Health Care Network, will join U.S. Representative Mike McIntyre, Fayetteville VAMC Director Elizabeth Goolsby and other dignitaries in dedicating the new facility, with tours provided after the ceremony.

The 5,500 square foot facility, located in Pembroke’s COMtech Park at 139 Three Hunts Drive, currently has almost 800 Veterans enrolled for care.  It will eventually provide primary care, mental health and home based primary care services for an estimated 2,400 Veterans.  Veterans who need specialty services will still be seen at the Fayetteville VA Medical Center for that care.

The clinic is also operating under the new Patient Aligned Care Team system, a first for the Fayetteville VA Medical Center.  PACT aligns patients under a health care team that includes a provider, registered nurse, licensed practical nurse and a medical administration specialist.  The patient gets to know their team and the team gets to know the patient’s needs, allowing for a better overall health care experience.

Construction on the clinic began in July 2010 and cost just over $471,000.  It is the fourth CBOC under the Fayetteville VAMC umbrella, joining those in Hamlet, Jacksonville and Wilmington, N.C.
