 Women Veterans, VA May Surprise You!


We invite you to come learn about these services. Join us on Wednesday, Jan 31st at the brand new Sumter VA Clinic located at 245 North Bultman Drive, Sumter SC. You will get to meet the Women Veterans Program Manager and the Women's Mental Health Champion for our health care system. They will provide an overview of VA health care services for you as a woman Veteran.

We’re continuously expanding our services to improve your care

Come meet us in person on January 31st to learn about what your VA offers for women Veterans!

Women Veterans, you may be surprised to learn about all VA has to offer! If you haven’t checked out VA in a while, we want you to know that services have increased.  We recognize that each of you are unique, and your health care needs are not “one-size-fits-all.” That's why VA continues to expand its services, so we can provide you with the best care possible to better fit your needs.

All of your care coordination in one place

When it comes to your health and well-being, we have you covered. VA is a one-stop-shop where you can receive care coordination for all your health needs in one place.  Your VA health care coordination includes primary and preventative care, reproductive health, fertility services, maternity care, mental health, and resources for your overall well-being, like exercise, sleep, and nutrition.

We’re not your grandfather’s VA

We’re here to support you in all stages of your life through gender-specific care (including LGBTQ+ health), preventive care, and general primary care for acute and chronic illnesses. You can receive routine wellness exams, as well as cervical cancer screening (Pap tests), breast cancer screening (mammograms), birth control, and vaccines.

We understand that not every woman’s journey is the same when it comes to pregnancy or family building. VA is a trusted partner in discussing sensitive reproductive health topics, such as fertility, birth control, menopause, and more. And we’ve expanded and improved our maternity care to include coordination for 12 months postpartum and access to lactation support and breast/chestfeeding supplies.

We also understand that women Veterans may face unique mental health challenges and we work to address them directly through evaluation, counseling, and treatment.  

Unexpected services that may surprise you

While those services may be in your usual rotation, these may come as a surprise:

• We’re not afraid to talk about sexual health. VA can address lack of interest or desire in sex, difficulty with arousal or orgasms, sexual pain, and may provide prescription vaginal devices and medications to help.

• We have prosthetics and sensory aids services from post-mastectomy implants and wigs to home improvement or alterations to accommodate disability needs.

• We can bring health care to you through virtual telehealth appointments in the comfort of your own home. Plus, you can get prescriptions in the mail!

• There’s plenty more to discover. Including well-being services like treatment for sleep issues, yoga, tai chi, acupuncture, and other treatments.


If you haven’t checked out VA in a while, this is a great opportunity for you to learn about what has changed! Our wide range of women’s health services and resources may surprise you.
