Change in services at the Chillicothe VA

Submitted story

In order to maximize resources in response to the COVID-19 pandemic across the Southcentral Ohio market, the Chillicothe VA Medical Center will close the acute medical beds, including the COVID care unit. Urgent Care will remain open.

For veterans who need admission for acute medical care or COVID, care will be coordinated with the VA facilities in Dayton, Cincinnati and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, as well as community hospitals.

If you need to schedule an appointment, you can contact your health care provider through MyHealtheVet secure messaging or call 740-773-1141, ext. 5575.

While this adjustment to inpatient procedures is effective immediately, veterans’ needs will be continuously reassessed and adjusted as needed.

The VA continues to be committed to providing veterans quality health care and meeting their health care needs with minimized risk to this virus. A variety of at-home resources and virtual care options are available. For more information about VA’s Connected Care technologies, visit

Veterans not enrolled in the VA health care system are encouraged to visit to register or call 740-772-7170 with questions.

Contact the Public Affairs Office at 740-773-1141, ext. 7080, with any questions or concerns.
