If you are one of the thousands of Veterans in Douglas County or know and love a service member, you’ll soon have access to VA health care closer to home.
VA Eastern Colorado Health Care System (ECHCS) hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, Feb. 1, for the soon-to-be-built VA outpatient clinic at the corner of Prairie Hawk Drive and Dacoro Lane in Castle Rock.
The County’s 20,000 Veterans will have access to all the services found at other regional VA Medical Centers including primary care and physical therapy options, at a location convenient to them. The new facility is expected to be open in mid-February 2025.
“I have so much gratitude to the VA for recognizing the service and sacrifices of the almost 20,000 Military Veterans that call Douglas County home by bringing this clinic to our County seat,” said Commissioner George Teal.
VA Services cover care for the mental and physical health of men and women who have served in the armed forces. Visit the Douglas County Veterans Service Office webpage for more information or to get your questions answered by Veterans Service Officers.
