Current Operating Status

Situation Update

As of Friday, April 24, 2020 2:53 PM EDT

If you’re a patient seeking medical care, call 866-808-7921 before visiting—even if you already have an appointment. Or you can sign in to My HealtheVet and send a secure message. You may be able to get diagnosed and receive care through VA telehealth without having to come in at all.

If you do visit a VA hospital, clinic, community living center or other health care facility, you’ll be met at the entrance by a staff member. They will greet you and ask you some screening questions. Depending on your answers, a VA health care professional will assist you on the next steps of your visit.

We have limited access at our main campuses to two entrances:
  • West Haven campus: Building 2 main lobby & Building 7 (weekdays from 6am-5pm)
  • Newington campus: Building 2E main lobby & Urgent Care
