COATESVILLE, PA — The Coatesville VA Medical Center has announced that it will be offering veterans access to a newly renovated Outpatient Mental Health Clinic. This new clinic will offer Behavioral Health Interdisciplinary Program (BHIP), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Substance Use Disorder (SUD) clinic, Neuropsychology, and Social Work services.

After years of careful planning, the new Outpatient Mental Health Services building will open for in-person care on February 21, 2023. The state-of-the-art 31,000-square foot facility will utilize modern standards in healthcare to provide veterans with top-quality mental health services. In the meantime, the hospital intends to continue offering outpatient mental health services from building 57 until the switchover to building 4 occurs.

Construction began in January 2021 with an allocated budget of $10.3 million. Changes are being made carefully so as not to detract from the historical building 4, which was first constructed in 1930. Despite more than 90 years having passed since its initial construction, the Coatesville VA wants to keep the design element and unique characteristics of this older section intact while renewing it to match today’s healthcare environment.
