Disabled veterans, who aren't able to get to the VA Clinic in Bend for medical care, are getting some help. The Veterans Administration bought a new van and had it delivered to Central Oregon last week. It's part of the VA Rural Healthcare Initiative. Chuck Mann schedules reservations for the van. He says the van will really help a segment that isn't currently served: “It's because we have a lot of veterans out in rural areas who are too disabled can't driver or financially couldn't afford it. They can come see their primary care doctor and they're not doing it. So that's what its going to be used for.” The van will travel to Redmond, La Pine, Madras and other rural areas to bring veterans to the Bend VA Clinic. 

 

UPDATE (04/02/2019): Central Oregon Veterans Outreach now schedules the rides. They can be reached at 541-383-2793.
