Noted Barbara is the NVA Medical Center Director. 30 years with the VA, 2yrs as Director here.  Barbara addressed how the VA is preparing for the future with the New Mission Act. Barb noted that the Northern Arizona Veterans Administration Health Care System encompasses 65,000 Sq. Miles of Northern Arizona. The average age of veterans it serves is 65 YOA. They see approx. 1,500 new unique veterans/year and enroll about 7,000 new per year. Goals achieved to improve the health care experience include: Improved telephone responsiveness with an improved call center, improved access to Primary Care and Pain Management teams. The Capital Master Plan includes New:  Lab/Pharmacy bldg.; Rehab/SPS; Radiology; Prosthetics/Occupational therapy bldg.; 10.000SF High Bay storage facility; Veterans education center and more. Their Commitment is to Provide the right care, right provider and at the right time.; If VA can’t provide a needed service it provides community care access information to assist Veterans with informed decisions.  If a Veteran elects care in the community, will coordinate the care. Provide exceptional customer service that exceeds Veterans’ expectations.  The impact of the Mission Act:  Almost 50% of Veterans used Specialty Care in the community last year; expect this to continue.  Based on Veteran addresses, 74% of Veterans live within 30 minutes of our Primary Care/Mental Health services. Our Goal is to create better experience for Veterans within the VA System: Access within 20 days and to pay attention to what matters most to Veterans.
