, CA — Sonoma County Veterans now access to a newly built VA clinic, specifically designed with their health care needs in mind. The new clinic, Santa Rosa VA Clinic South opened on August 15, 2022. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held yesterday, August 24, 2022.
The new South Santa Rosa Clinic, located at 2285 Challenger Way, is the culmination of years of work. Planning for the clinic has taken several years and construction of the $12 million clinic began in 2020. It will not replace the existing VA clinic at 3841 Brickway Blvd. in the Airport Business Center north of Santa Rosa, but instead will add more services to complement those already offered to Sonoma County Veterans.
“We’re very excited to have this clinic open and operational,” said Jia Li, Acting San Francisco VA Health Care System Director. “We are now able to offer a multitude of services for our Veterans in a modern, healing environment. With two clinics now in Santa Rosa, many more Veterans will now have access to care right in their backyard, saving them the lengthy trip to San Francisco.”
The new clinic is just under 58,000 square feet, and this expanded footprint will allow for a dynamic team model for primary care, as well as provide ample space to expand mental health and other specialty care services.
Services available at the new Santa Rosa VA South Clinic include:
Primary Care Podiatry
Mental Health Social Work
Women’s Health Physical Therapy
Member Services Patient Advocate
The existing Santa Rosa VA Clinic, now named the Santa Rosa VA North Clinic, will remain operational and will provide the following services:
Supportive Housing Services (HUD VASH)
Occupational Therapy Mobility
Home Based Primary Care
Veterans Justice Outreach
