The curbside anticoagulation clinic will be offering point of care International Normalizing Ratio (INR) testing through the valet lane at the front of the facility. The clinic is available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. by appointment only. Patients can call ext. 4794 or 2822 for questions regarding the clinic.
The drive-thru pharmacy will be available Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Veterans will be able to pick up their prescriptions from the convenience of their car.
We are still encouraging Veterans to use mail-order prescriptions when possible. Please allow 7 to 10 days for prescription delivery. Veterans can refill their prescriptions via the phone and My HealtheVet. Veterans coming to the medical center to pick up their needed prescriptions will need to bring their ID.
Influenza-Like Illness Station and Urgent Care Clinic HoursThe Influenza-Like Illness (ILI) Clinic and Urgent Care Clinic are open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Patients that present after the normal operating hours will be directed to the Emergency Department.
Influenza-Like Illness Station
The ILI clinic will be used to evaluate and triage potential COVID-19 patients and determine needs for testing.
Walk-in Urgent Care
This is a walk-in clinic to treat Veterans with urgent needs who are not experiencing influenza-like symptoms. Veterans will be triaged by a nurse and seen by a provider. Veterans who are displaying influenza-like symptoms will be triaged at the Influenza-Like Illness station.
Postponement of Routine Clinic Visits:In response to the current COVID-19 public health crisis we have made the decision to postpone all non-emergent clinic visits until further notice. Veterans requiring urgent care will still be seen face-to-face by a provider. Our Emergency Department remains open 24/7 for emergent care.
Visits by Veterans without appointments or valid medical needs are suspended until the transmission of COVID-19 is a reduced threat to our Veterans and employees. We are committed to working with family members and friends to support certain exceptions, while minimizing risk.
We are proactively contacting patients to offer options to convert clinic appointments to virtual ones.
Please do not walk into any of our clinics without an appointment. If you feel you have been exposed to COVID-19 or have flu-like symptoms, please contact your primary care team by phone or Secure Message using My HealtheVet.
Valet Parking has been temporarily suspended. Self-parking will still be available for all Veterans and visitors; shuttle service will be provided to and from the patient parking lot.
Visitor Restrictions and Screening Procedures:The front gate is conducting 100% ID checks Monday through Friday. Visitors are not allowed at the Martinsburg VAMC except in end-of-life cases.
Veterans and Visitors will be directed to a drive-thru screening station and will be asked simple questions about symptoms and exposure to anyone with COVID-19.
We understand that this could be an inconvenience for many. We appreciate your cooperation and assistance and we hope to make this process as seamless as possible.
