Bay Pines has highly skilled patient advocates who are eager to help you with your concern in a timely manner. The Patient Advocates serve as liaisons between patients and the medical center, act on the patient's behalf, and help patients understand their rights and responsibilities. Our patient advocates are located on the 1st floor of the main hospital at Bay Pines and also in the Lee County VA Healthcare Center. If you experience a problem at another clinic, please call one of our Patient Advocates to discuss.
