Pathology and Laboratory

Our laboratory personnel collect blood samples and perform many tests that aid physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of conditions. If you need to bring any specimen to the laboratory, please ensure that your complete name and full social security number are legible and correct. To avoid delay, it is important to bring your laboratory order number with you. Any questions you may have about blood collection, or any of the tests that have been ordered, should be directed to your physician.

Patient Travel

Veterans Transportation Service  is available to aid Veterans with travel assistance for those who qualify.  Veterans who are visually impaired, elderly, or immobilized due to disease or disability face several challenges in traveling.  VTS aids these Veterans; however, all Veterans eligible for VA medical benefits are eligible for this service.  
Certain Veterans are also eligible to receive beneficiary travel to cover the costs of traveling from home to the medical center. 505-265-1711, ext. 2821

Police Service

The Raymond G. Murphy VA Medical Center has a Police Service. Our officers provide 24-hour patrols of the facility and parking lots. Report all suspicious and/or criminal activity, vehicle accidents, missing persons, property thefts/ losses on the facility grounds to the VA Police  as soon as possible. Because the VA Medical Center is federal property, all persons and bags are subject to search. In addition, no weapons, alcohol, or illegal drugs are permitted.  The Police Service Office is located on the first floor at the east end of Bldg. 1. For general police assistance, please dial 505-265-1711,  ext. 4222. In case of an emergency within the medical center, dial ext. 2222.

Recreation Therapy provides a broad range of activities and programs to assist Veteran patients with learning how to best use their spare time, how to cope recreationally with injuries and how to select positive recreational activities. Many of our recreation therapy programs, such as yoga and adaptive kayaking, are conducted on our medical center campus.  This includes our annual Veterans Creative Arts Festival.  However, some programs, such as our annual fly fishing program and wheelchair basketball, are held off campus. 505-265-1711, ext. 4208
