The Lebanon VA Medical Center celebrated the opening of its brand new primary care space with a ribbon cutting and tour for local officials and media on Wednesday, Jan. 10.

The new 17,000-square-foot primary care space features 20 exam rooms, eight consult rooms, and two group rooms.

“We are thrilled to be able to open this space, to be able to provide care in a modern, state-of-the-art facility,” said Lebanon VA Medical Center director Jeffrey A. Beiler II.

The facility is built around the PACT model, or Patient Aligned Care Team, which implements a team-based approach to whole-person care and life-long health and wellness. The admin space is in the center of the exam rooms, which allows for primary care providers, nurses, and other staff to share a collaborative space that is meant to realize more coordinated and more effective care for patients.

“That collaborative space in the center of this design is a big enhancement and not something we have here on the main campus,” said Beiler, noting that this configuration has already been implemented in Lebanon VAMC clinics.

Although no new jobs are being crated with the expansion, the opening of the new primary care facility allows some of those services to be moved out of the main building and free up that space for additional speciality service expansion.

Beiler said that the center will now work on a design to construct a mirror image facility on the other side of the building, which will be used to relocate the rest of the primary care team, as well as the women’s health group, into a similar setup.

The changes come as part of a master plan that was last updated in 2019.

“I want to encourage any veteran who’s not using our facilities or VA health care to come out, see our space, and give us a try,” said Beiler.
