Everyone entering our facilities is screened, and visitors are limited. Face coverings are mandatory. Please contact us first before going to any of our locations. For some needs, you may be able to get care at home by phone or video.

The VA Northern California Health Care System has adjusted operations to ensure we can continue to deliver the best care to Veterans in the safest way possible. While we always strive to provide a clean environment, we are taking additional measures, such as frequent cleaning of high-touch areas like doorknobs, handrails, countertops and vinyl seating, as well as removing magazines and other paper documents from waiting areas. Rigorous cleaning will continue in inpatient areas. As a reminder, washing your hands with soap and water (for at least 20 seconds) is still the best way to clean your hands. However, if that is not possible, additional hand hygiene stations are located throughout our facilities.

Update to Audiology Clinic Appointments

Improving Veteran's access to care is our top priority. We're thrilled to announce the expansion of our same-day care clinics across all audiology campuses in VA Northern California Health Care System that now offer routine care "on-demand" for hearing aid services.

If your hearing aids aren't working, are too loud, or your cell phone or TV streamer isn't connecting to your hearing aids, there's no need to make an appointment—just drop by a same-day clinic for immediate help. We have talented teams of audiologists and healthcare technicians to keep your hearing aids in top working order.

Did you know that we can program most hearing aids using your cell phone from the comfort of your own home? Make sure you have a valid email address and inquire about VA Video Connect (VVC) appointments with your provider!

We are also now offering complete audiology services at Auburn and Yreka, with Yuba City, Sonora, Stockton, and Modesto to follow. Watch out for updates on launch dates.

For non-routine hearing aid services, like any hearing test, you still need an appointment. Remember that audiology is a direct access clinic, so you don't need to get a referral to make a hearing test appointment—call the call center at 1-800-382-8387.

Our on-demand same-day clinics and VVC appointments have replaced routine hearing aid appointments. While we work to expand the hours of the same-day clinics if the current hours don't work for you, contact your provider to book a scheduled slot.

Same-day clinic hours:

AUBURN: Tuesdays & Thursdays 8:00AM-11:30AM

CHICO: Tuesdays & Wednesdays 8:00 AM-11:30AM; Thursdays 8:00AM-11:30AM and 1:00PM-3:00PM
