The current COVID pandemic is causing delays with mail and package deliveries, which includes prescription medication deliveries. Central Virginia VA Health Care System (CVHCS) wants to keep our patients updated about the situation so that Veterans can make informed decisions about their health care needs. Currently, with the delays, prescriptions arrive by mail in about 4 -6 days. However, this timeframe depends on numerous factors such as how far away a Veteran lives in proximity to the primary postal hub. If medications have not arrived in seven days after ordering, please call the CVHCS Pharmacy at 1-800-784-8381 or 804-675-5010. Ideally, refill orders should be placed at least 10 - 14 days before running out. However, to help prevent a lapse in medication, our Pharmacy Department recommends placing refill orders as soon as the Veteran receives the initial prescription. The Pharmacy Department is committed to assisting you with any prescription needs. Thank you for trusting CVHCS with all of your health care needs.
As Central Virginia VA Health Care System (CVHCS) continues to increase the number of face-to-face visits at our facilities, we also look at ways to ensure the safety of patients and employees remains a top priority. To provide adequate social distancing within our clinics and waiting areas, we ask all patients arrive no earlier than 20 minutes before their appointment. Patients who arrive earlier than 20 minutes before their scheduled appointment may be asked to wait before entering the premises.
Whether it be through a face-to-face appointment or one of our many telehealth options, we look forward to serving you in the future. Thank you for your cooperation.
This is what we are doing to keep you and your loved ones safe:
- Actively screening everyone at all entrances
- Temporarily suspended visitation to the facility
- Veterans, please do not bring any guests unless you need assistance ambulating or wayfinding due to a health or mental condition. Only one guest is permitted.
- No visitors to any inpatient ward except to see critically ill patients who may be toward the end of life (this will be the attending physician’s decision).
- Only one visitor at a time will be permitted to see a critically ill patient. If possible, the critically ill patient should be limited to one visitor daily.
- Children under the age of 18 are currently not being permitted to enter our facility.
- Veterans experiencing flu-like symptoms such as fever, cough and shortness of breath, call the Nurse Call Center at 804-675-5542 before you visit!
- Valet service will function as normal.
Please know that our Veterans’ health will remain our top priority as we work to limit the spread of viruses.
