ATLAS Site in Virginia Provides Space for Convenient VA Care

1 min read

Veterans who live near Springfield, Virginia, have likely sat idling in traffic for hours, just to get care in Washington, D.C. For those Veterans, navigating Washington’s notoriously heavy traffic is no longer a problem — at least for their U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare appointments. Instead of driving to the nearest VA Medical Center in Washington, those Veterans can now meet face to face with their VA providers through video telehealth technology in a private appointment room at American Legion Post 176 in Springfield. The state-of-the-art appointment space is one of several ATLAS (Accessing Telehealth through Local Area Stations) sites nationwide. ATLAS is VA’s latest innovative virtual health care option to help increase Veteran access to care. It not only provides a solution to Veterans with long travel times to VA facilities, but also, it provides easy access for Veterans with limited internet connectivity at home.
