DOD VA Health Care Partnership Adds Ft Jacksons Hospital

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR A regional health care partnership that started with the medical center at Fort Gordon and two Veterans Affairs hospitals in Georgia has been extended to Fort Jackson’s Moncrief Army Community Hospital and a VA Medical Center in Columbia, S.C.The partnership started in 2012 with a $2.9 million grant from DOD and VA allowing Fort Gordon’s Eisenhower Army Medical Center and VA hospitals in Augusta and Dublin, Ga., to coordinate patient care and identify opportunities for sharing facilities, personnel and services, reported the Augusta Chronicle.  Adding the two Co­lum­bia facilities should expand opportunities for collaboration, according to Col. John Lamoureux, chairman of the Georgia-Lina Federal Healthcare Executive Council and Eisenhower’s commander.“We have a shared interest in caring for our nation’s service members and veterans,” Lamoureux said of the five hospitals involved. “This cooperation allows us to reduce appointment backlogs, keep our physicians fully engaged and, most importantly, provide the best care possible for our patients.”He said that “this partnership stands as an example of the future of military and VA medicine.”The partnership started with orthopedic patients from the Dublin VA going to Fort Gordon for surgery and the Augusta VA for rehabilitation, according to the story. The initiative came in response to a rise in the number of veterans receiving disability compensation as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan began to draw down.last_img read more
