The VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System offers full comprehensive health care to all eligible women Veterans. You have two options.
Option 1: Choose a primary care provider in one of our primary care clinics. Your primary care provider will handle your primary care needs (care for acute and chronic illness, and disease prevention, etc.) and refer you to the Women’s Center for your gender-specific care (paps, mammograms, breast health, STD’s, menopause, birth control).
Option 2: Choose a Primary Care Provider in the Women’s Center. Your women’s clinic provider will handle all of your health care, acute and chronic illness as well as your gender-specific needs.
No matter which option you choose, you will have access to a gynecologist or obstetrician when you need it.
We are currently integrating “comprehensive primary care” into all of the primary care clinics. Comprehensive primary care includes gender-specific care. You will be offered to change providers prior to complete integration, but it’s up to you. You can stay with the provider you feel most comfortable with.
