Local transportation services

Veterans Transportation Service (VTS)

The Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center has its own internal program to transport Veterans with special needs, who require help getting to an appointment. Requests for transportation to appointments or discharge from inpatient wards can be fulfilled on space-available vehicles.

To request a VTS ride, a Veteran (or caregiver or VA nurse/provider) can call our Dispatch Office. Resources are very limited and in much demand, so as much advance notice as possible is needed.

The Veteran will be picked up by VA drivers and given ‘door-to-door’ service from their home to their appointment and back.

There is no cost to the Veteran, and the only eligibility requirement is to be an enrolled Veteran in need of a ride to an appointment. Call us with any questions at: 706-733-0188, ext. 28004.

Local Shuttle Bus

The Charlie Norwood VA Medical Center shuttle service provides safe and reliable transportation to Veterans, employees and volunteers.

The shuttle service assists outpatient Veterans and staff who use wheelchair, canes, walkers, or braces to its current shuttle.

Shuttle services are provided between our Downtown and Uptown Divisions between 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. No weekends or holiday services available.

Those who need a wheelchair accessible shuttle must be accompanied by an escort. For assistance, please call 706-733-0188, extensions 27815, 27814 or 26146.

When the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) expires on May 11, 2023, some of VA’s pandemic-related authorities will expire as well. VA has been preparing for this moment for months, working to make this transition as seamless as possible for Veterans, their families, caregivers and survivors. VA is also working with our partners in the Administration and in Congress to extend or reinstate many of these authorities when possible.

As our nation enters this new moment, VA remains committed to delivering world-class care and benefits to all those we serve. If you are concerned about the expiration of any of these authorities, we encourage you to reach out to your local VA medical center, call 800-698-2411, or go to VA’s Contact Us webpage. We will make sure that you get the care and support that you have earned.

Removal of VA’s legal authority to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to spouses, caregivers and Veterans not enrolled in VA health care. During the PHE, VA was authorized to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to spouses, caregivers and Veterans who are not enrolled in the VA health care system. Following the expiration of the PHE on May 11, 2023, VA will no longer have this legal authority. Spouses, caregivers and Veterans not eligible for VA health care are encouraged to remain up to date with recommended vaccines and access COVID-19 vaccination in the community: Vaccines.gov - Find COVID‑19 vaccine locations near you

Radiation oncologists specialize in using high-energy radiation to kill or damage cancer cells and either destroy tumors or control their growth. Our doctors sometimes use radiation therapy in combination with surgery, chemotherapy, or other cancer treatments. The radiation therapy you receive will depend on cancer type, tumor size and location, and your general health. Our services include:

  • Intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), which uses computers to deliver precise radiation doses that match the 3D shape of your tumor
  • Intracranial stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), which uses targeted radiation to treat a brain tumor or lesion while minimizing radiation effects on healthy brain tissue
  • Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT), which uses precisely focused radiation to treat tumors in your lungs, spine, liver, lymph nodes, or other soft tissues
  • Low-dose rate definitive and salvage brachytherapy, which use low doses of radiation to treat prostrate cancer
  • Image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), which uses detailed images to help focus radiation on affected areas, improve outcomes, and shorten treatment

We work with behavioral health providers and community organizations to help you and your family during times of crisis.
