VA Medical Center Announces Campus, Clinic Access Updates
TOMAH, Wis. (March 31, 2020) – For the safety of Veterans and staff, the Tomah VA Medical Center and its Community Based Outpatient Clinics (CBOCs) continue to make adjustments to medical center and clinic operations to minimize the risk of COVID-19.

Outpatient clinics and Urgent Care remain open. VA is encouraging phone or video visits instead of in-person visits for most routine appointments. You can reduce the spread of illness by using MyHealtheVet for secure messaging and VA Telehealth for remote video visits from your home.

The medical center is suspending all walk-in appointments including but not limited to: Audiology, Optometry, Prosthetics, Community Care, and Rehab. If these services are still needed, Veterans are encouraged to contact the medical center at 1-800-872-8662.  The Patient Advocate office will be available via telephone only, extension 66353 or 67723. The library is closed to outpatients at this time.

Effective March 30, 2020, the Outpatient Pharmacy is providing curbside pickup for urgent prescription needs following VA medical visits or for other urgent medication needs.  The curbside pickup site is in front of building 407.  This service will be provided Monday through Friday 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.  Veterans’ providers will continue to prescribe or refill non-urgent prescriptions to be mailed out.

Veterans should only come to the medical center if necessary and utilize the mail to receive outpatient prescriptions. A pharmacist will be available to assist if there is an urgent need for a prescription that cannot wait for mail delivery.  However, Veterans need to plan ahead to take full advantage of the mail delivery options to minimize potential exposure and spread of COVID-19.

To speak to a pharmacy representative, request a refill, or check the status of prescriptions: please call 1-800-872-8662 or utilize MyHealtheVet.

The Medical Center and CBOCs “No Visitors” policy remains in effect.  Visitors will be prohibited from entering the medical center or clinics unless it is necessary for providing medical care, or visiting under compassionate care circumstances, such as grave illness or imminent death of a family member under care in the facility.  These visits will be limited to one individual at a time and only in the Veteran’s room. No visitors under the age of 18 will permitted on campus or in clinics at any time.
All Veterans and visitors meeting the above criteria for compassionate care who enter the campus will be pre-screened for signs of respiratory illness prior to entry.  Per CDC guidance and VA protocols, patients known to be at risk for a COVID-19 infection are immediately isolated to prevent potential spread to others.

Veterans, if you have flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath, call us at 1-888-598-7793 before you visit your local medical center or clinic. In addition to calling first, consider using virtual care options such as telehealth or MyHealtheVet Secure Messaging.

Veterans and staff are encouraged to take everyday preventive actions to avoid being exposed to the virus:  

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Stay home if you are sick or becoming sick.
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • If you have symptoms or have been exposed to someone with symptoms, call the VA before going to the facility.
