South Hillsborough Veterans Clinic to Open May 21

The highly-anticipated VA South Hillsborough Outpatient Clinic is scheduled to open May 21. Located at 12920 Summerfield Crossing Boulevard, at the corner of US-301, the 50,000-square-foot clinic expects to serve more than 10,000 Veterans residing in Riverview, Ruskin, Sun City Center, Gibsonton, Wimauma, and Apollo Beach.

Open House May 14

The medical team will be led by Chief Medical Officer Dr. Patricia Mossop; and the services provided will include: primary care including women’s primary care, radiology, audiology, dietary and mental health counseling, laboratory, pharmacy, physical medicine and rehab, respiratory therapy, social work, prosthetics, telehealth, podiatry, and patient advocacy.

While there are no geographical restrictions on where Veterans may receive care, patients of providers moving from the Primary Care Annex to the new South Hillsborough clinic and existing Haley patients will be given priority. Patients who wish to have their care transferred to the new clinic should discuss this with their Primary Care Physician.

Veterans who are not currently enrolled in VA health care should contact the VA’s Enrollment & Eligibility Office at 813.972.2000 ext. 1710, or visit “www.tampa.va.gov/patients/eligibility.asp” for further information. An open house is scheduled for May 14. The first patient day will be May 21.
