The Department of Veterans Affairs started a new chapter of healthcare in the Green Bay area Aug. 19 with the opening of the new and vastly improved Milo C. Huempfner Outpatient Clinic.
The two-story Green Bay clinic has 161,525 square feet and 1,200 parking spaces and more than 300 healthcare providers.
To put that in perspective, the previous Green Bay Clinic was only 7,000 square feet and served 3,500 veterans. Our goal is to double that capacity in the next 12 months. We have already nearly doubled our Mental Health treatment staff. The center will eventually be able to treat up to 20,000 veterans.
We are taking a very Veteran-centric approach to getting people in for care in Green Bay as quickly as possible. Our priority is to honor all previous commitments we made to the Veterans who were already established with the VA and received care at our Green Bay and Appleton Clinics, and then offer care at the Milo C. Huempfner Outpatient Clinic to Veterans who obtain medical services through VA expense (fee basis) in the community.
As our clinic capacity increases over the next six months, we will open enrollment in Green Bay to Veterans who wish to establish their care with the VA. While at this time we may have to provide care for our new enrollees through non-VA providers in the community, we continue to recruit top talent to our new Green Bay facility.
Within the next four months, four new primary care providers are scheduled to start, with an additional physician slated to arrive early in 2014.
As of August 26, the Under Secretary for Health for the Department of Veterans Affairs approved our request to provide the following new services:
Rehab Medicine Prosthetics
Rehab Medicine PT/OT
Audiology and Speech
We are working to fully initiate and expand these services in the near future, while phasing in Cardiology, Dermatology, Urology, and other specialty care as we are able to recruit and train qualified providers and support staff.
Medical visits for our enrolled veterans require an appointment. Please call to cancel any appointments you cannot keep.
To make your appointment more productive, we suggest that you bring with you:
