Freeman to all staff, about the successful kickoff of our recent

 VAPAHCS Expands Access with CVS MinuteClinic
 
On Tuesday, May 24, VA Palo Alto Health Care System launched a pilot
that will bring even more access to our Veterans with the CVS
MinuteClinic.
 
The unique program is only for Veterans enrolled at VAPAHCS, allowing
them to be referred by the Telephone Care Program to a participating CVS
MinuteClinic in Northern California. They can receive same-day care for
minor illnesses and injuries, even on nights and weekends.
 
The pilot took a lot of hard work to get off the ground and I want to
thank everyone involved, especially the champion of the pilot,
Dr. Sarah Russell. Without her persistence and expertise, this pilot
would not have succeeded - thank you Sarah!
