San Antonio, Texas (March 16, 2020) - The South Texas Veterans Health Care System is taking extra precautions aimed at limiting exposure risk to Veterans, volunteers, employees, and visitors.
Veterans who are concerned they may have symptoms of COVID-19, flu, or cold should call 877-537-7348 before coming to the VA. Clinical staff are available to provide 24/7 virtual care and support, including nurse advice and triage. This service is available at no cost to Veterans enrolled for VA health care.
The South Texas Veterans Health Care System includes the Audie L. Murphy VA Medical Center in San Antonio; the Kerrville VA Medical Center and the following outpatient and contract clinics:
• Frank M. Tejeda Outpatient Clinic
• North Central Federal Clinic
• Balcones Heights Outpatient Clinic
• Shavano Park Outpatient Clinic
• South Bexar Outpatient Clinic
• Victoria Outpatient Clinic
• Data Point Outpatient Clinic
• Northeast 410
• Northwest 410
• Pecan Valley
• New Braunfels

To minimize risk for employees and Veterans, everyone who enters the South Texas Veterans Health Care System campuses will be pre-screened. This may lengthen entry times, so patients are advised to allow for that when arriving for their appointments.

The screening consists of three questions:

1. Do you have a fever or worsening cough or shortness of breath or flu-like symptoms?
2. Have you or a close contact traveled to an area with widespread or sustained community transmission of COVID-19 within 14 days of symptom onset?
3. Have you been in close contact with someone, including health care workers, confirmed to have COVID-19?



The North Central Federal Clinic opened December 4, 2006, as the result of an innovative venture between the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Defense (DoD).  The clinic provides health care services to approximately 12,000 Veterans and TRICARE beneficiaries.  If you are a DoD beneficiary, please go to www.tricareonline.com. *
