Facility Description:

The Central Alabama Veterans Health Care System (CAVHCS) was established January 1, 1997, from the merger of the Montgomery and Tuskegee VA Medical Centers, which includes community-based outpatient clinics in Dothan, Alabama, Monroeville, Alabama and Columbus, Georgia. These sites serve more than 134,000 veterans in 43 counties in the central and southeastern portions of Alabama and western Georgia. A member of the Atlanta Veterans Integrated Services Network (VISN) #7, CAVHCS’ mission is to provide excellent services to Veterans across the continuum of healthcare.

The East (Tuskegee) and West (Montgomery) campuses are approximately 40 miles apart. The East Campus is located on 170-acres of land situated in a rural setting adjacent to the historic Tuskegee University and Moton Field, home of the Tuskegee Airmen. The West Campus is situated on 52-acres, located in a residential community adjacent to city school property and approximately five miles east of downtown Montgomery. Services include: Primary Care at all four sites; Medical and Surgical care; a broad range of Mental Health programs; Geriatrics and extended care, and a homeless domiciliary. Accreditations include the Joint Commission and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

CAVHCS’ Geriatrics, Extended Care and Rehabilitation Service’s continuum of care includes initiatives that encompass the “whole person” concept. The Dedicated Alzheimer Dementia Unit allows staff to focus on the special needs of patients with dementia. The Wandering Area, a park-like setting complete with a waterfall, allows patients with dementia access to outside activities with their families. Adoption of the Eden Alternative concept has created a home-like environment utilizing plants, pets and familiarization techniques. CAVHCS has been successful in maintaining low rates for pressure sores.

One-stop access for Veterans and their families has been enhanced by the co-location of the VA Regional Office (VARO) building on the southeast corner of the West Campus complex, as well as, VARO staff housed within the Special Examinations Unit (Compensation & Pension [C&P]; Pre-military discharge; Persian Gulf; Agent Orange, etc.).

The Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Columbus, GA offers both Medical and Mental Health Primary Care. CAVHCS operates a contracted Community-Based Outpatient Clinic (CBOC) in Dothan, AL, which provides Medical Primary Care. Mental Health Primary Care is provided through the CAVHCS staffed Mental Health Clinic in Dothan. The Wiregrass Outpatient Clinic in Fort Rucker, AL provides Primary Care and Lab Services. The newest addition to the CAVHCS, the Monroeville CBOC, provides both Medical and Mental Health Primary Care.

Community Description:

Montgomery is the capital of the U.S. state of Alabama and is the county seat of Montgomery County. Named for Richard Montgomery, it is located on the Alabama River, in the Gulf Coastal Plain. As of the 2013 Census, Montgomery has a population of 201,332. It is the second-largest city in Alabama, after Birmingham, and is the 115th largest in the United States. The Montgomery Metropolitan Statistical Area had a 2010 estimated population of 374,536. It is the fourth-largest in the state and 136th among United States metropolitan areas.

Montgomery is known for its renaissance of historic downtown and redevelopment of the riverfront. Montgomery is a city rich in history, yet clearly focused on the future. Once the capital of the Confederacy, Montgomery grew to become the center of the Civil Rights Movement. We are more than just the capital of Alabama-we are the epitome of economic prosperity. We enjoy being the showplace for southern hospitality, beautiful weather, and high-tech jobs.
