Important Information for Veterans:

The Bay Pines VA Healthcare System will no longer store any medications. We ask that you no longer bring medications with you when you visit our facilities during outpatient appointments or inpatient admissions.  Instead, please bring a list of medications. This list should include dosage, why the medication is taken and frequency of use. Questions? Please contact your primary care provider or a member of you health care team.

At Bay Pines VA Healthcare System, we have established a number of procedures to assist you in getting an appointment without delay.  Our goals are simple:

  • you should be able to see your primary care provider within one to two business days
  • you should have access to speciality care services when needed
